Valentina Vetturi

Reggio Calabria, 1979. Lives in Bari and Geneva

Vetturi’s art involves writing and performance, within a discursive, authorial space, in which the artist’s memories and immersive experiences acquire a new form. Her works have often touched upon the theme of invisibility: from her fascination with ghost writers (Un libro di specchi, 2014), to her exploration of the disease that consumes our memories (Alzheimer Café I e II, 2014‒15), and the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Ettore Majorana (La mossa di Ettore, 2014). In her installations and performances, Vetturi constantly negotiates new relationship rules with the spectator (Una mostra, 2012; La funzione, 2009). Her work has been displayed by numerous institutions, including Strauhof, Zurich (2016), MACRO, Rome (2015), MAXXI, Rome, Kunsthalle Göppingen, Tranzit.ro, Bucharest (2014), Fondazione Sandretto Turin, Viafarini, Milan (2012), and Tenuta dello Scompiglio, Lucca (2011).
