Manuela Maroli ( Italy )
Lives and works in Turin.
Manuela Maroli is an interdisciplinary artist, she has been active as body artist since 1999.
With her work she explores poetic and visual languages through the body, her main Medium of expressive research; she works in the field of performance art, extreme body art and action poetry, using photography as an extension and documentary support to her artistic practice. She’s interested in complex topics such as violence, oppression, abuse, diversity, solitude, isolation, emargination and social injustice, working with a poetic bodily approach, in a constant search for a contact and a comparison with otherness.
In 2013 she dedicated herself to various studies and started her own research in Performance Art. In 2014 she founded the artistic collective known as Svergin_Arte , aimed to create new realities of artistic aggregation / expression and new artistic / poetic horizons. Since 2015 she is one of the co-founder member of the international artistic collective known as The other society. She has participated at Shingle22J Biennale, curated by Ugo Magnanti and at BIBART Biennale, curated by Miguel Gomez. She has performed around Europe.
Through performance art projects, she started collaborations with other artists, among them Ilaria Palomba, Rahman Hak – Hagir, Juan Carlos Villalba, Miguel Gomez, Alex Sala, Erica Gornati and others. She is the founder of the international platform “I support performance art“, aimed to support performance artists from all over the world and to share the history of Performance art.
Inspired by artistic and social aggregation, she is currently working on a series of public collective and participative performances.
Since autumn 2018 she is part of the artistic duo “Sacrificium Viduae“, a project of performative literature, created by Ariase Barretta, italian writer and PhD in Hispanic Literature at the Complutense University of Madrid.
