An artist and researcher investigating melancholic myths, ecology, invisible geographies, memories, haunted landscapes and ephemerality and creatively exploring places through installation, photography, new media and performance.
I am an artist, researcher and lecturer from Rome. I grew up in Rome, lived in Kathmandu, Bangkok, the Scottish Highlands and am now based in Glasgow. My artworks comprise installation, photography, new media, and performance.
At the origin of my creative practice is research into melancholic myths, ecology, invisible geographies, memories, haunted landscapes and ephemerality.
My research and creative work have always focused on the creative exploration of places. I investigate histories from the past, myths and forgotten traditions; how they permeate the space around us and possibly shape how we interact with it.
In previous projects, I explored the interconnection between visible and invisible geographies, between narratives of the past and territory, between tangible and intangible heritage.
How we perceive and contemplate places affects how we treat them and ultimately impacts how we live within them. Reconnecting with stories from the past, legends, beliefs, and local traditions concerning specific spaces and places would help us develop a deeper awareness of the territory, and consequently, a more thorough interconnection with it.
Awareness helps in generating respect.
