LIVES AND WORKS
Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, Monica Gorini has always combined her training in the field of teaching and pedagogy with the artistic activity, in cooperation with the Universites: Milano-Bicocca, Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, U.I.C. Italian Union of Blind People, Institute of Blind People of Milan, Triennale Design Museum, Art Beyond Sight in New York are entities of reference for her collaborations and research in art and education field.
She displayed two sculptures in 2007-2009 at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York, as part of the conference ‘Multi-modal approaches to learning, creativity and communication’ involving an audience of artists-researchers.
Monica Gorini's artistic research, inspired by the long-time experience with blind people, is based on the blend of different languages and a marked disposition to experimentation. Her works always include a reference to multi-sensoriality and are accompanied by the poems composed by the artist herself.
She is a self-taught photographer and often combines personal references and materials from her own poetic and oneiric world with scientific and philosophical theories, bringing them together in a single form of narration. Particularly close to the world of nature and rights, she is in search of an aesthetic purpose stimulating current and intimate thoughts, aimed at developing social consciousness and a new spiritual ecology of the world.
New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelona, Turin, Venice, Milan, Rome are some of the cities in which she exhibited her works.
