About

(b. 1996, IT)

I am an Italian visual artist currently based between Amsterdam and Milan.
After graduating in Painting from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, I earned a Master’s degree in Visual Arts & Ecology Futures at the Master Institute of Visual Cultures in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, NL.
My artistic research develops through a heterogeneous variety of media, from sculpture to installation, drawing to written text, and it investigates the relationship between human and nature within the anthropocentric vision of the Western world.
How do we relate to the current environmental crisis as individuals?
In what ways are we part of the society’s capitalistic systems and what are the effects of our adeherence to its (aesthetic) regimes?
In my works I try to examine portray my own entanglement, as an individual, within the widespread transformations of the uncertain present I live in.
In a process of abstraction from personal memories and experiences, as well as specific localized systems, places, and objects; my works develop through states of ambiguity, hibridity, and ‘in-betweenness’, where the body and the environment, local and global dimensions, as well as opposite forces such as growth and decay, all melt together.
My hope is for my works to function as ‘lenses’ offering the viewer varied perspectives to look at our human-made environments and question their own entanglement within the material realities we are all immersed in today.
