Marzia Migliora

Alessandria, 1972. Lives in Turin

Migliora uses a broad spectrum of media, including photography, video, sound, performance, installation and drawing, to create works that elevate the simplest human activities to moments able to recount excerpts of collective history. The artist explores the concept of “work force” in various pieces and from many different perspectives: as a political gesture (Un caso, 2014), a historic memory and account (Stilleven, 2015), and a cultural moment of activating social renewal processes (Io in testa, 2013). In most of her works, the element of absence invites the viewer to establish an exclusive relationship with the work and its potential meanings. The various institutions that have exhibited Migliora’s work include Mart, Rovereto, the Italian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015), Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2012), Museo del Novecento, Milan (2009), Fondazione Merz (2006) and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2004).
