Fonfara has studied several different esoteric practices, including spiritism, shamanism and other healing practices. In her work she embarks on an ontological investigation of the crossings of inner and outer worlds through introspection and experimentation with both animistic traditions as in shamanism and other contemplative healing practices, where the essences of soul and materiality are entangled in a holistic comprehension of all life. In her work the perception of reality, imagination and spirituality are closely connected through the senses in our bodies. Fonfara works in various medias such as sculpture, installations, performance, photo, text, sound, video and film.
Amalia Fonfara lives and works as an artist and shamanic practitioner in Trondheim Norway, where she also teaches courses in shamanic work. She is currently doing a one year study prg. in shamanic healing at Scandinavian Center of Shamanic Studies in Sweden.
