Rä di Martino

Rome, 1975. Lives in Turin

Many of Rä di Martino’s works fill the void that separates reality from fiction. They are often recordings of events, situations experienced firsthand by the artist or filtered through film and theater. The artist’s preferred expressive media are video and photography, which she uses to stage stories that are so artificial they appear true or, on the contrary, so realistic they appear abstract. A large number of her pieces are characterized by the use of a surreal, bizarre, ironic, and often alienating linguistic register, producing a sensory short circuit that prevents the spectator from discerning the difference between reality and portrayal.
