Giuliana Silvestrini

Data and contact details

Giuliana Silvestrini, biologist, Counselor in Arthémotherapy, holds a MA degree at Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. Giuliana Silvestrini expresses herself in painting in an informal way; in sculptures / installations, in dialogue with painting, there are traces of time, minimal stories, memories, identities. Attentive to "recovery", uses used clothes, disused fishing nets, old pots, and dry bread crumbs. It uses different media, from video to sound processing, to a neo-conceptual art that in a space / time dimension tends to the founding principle of "open work".
