LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Roberta Segata has a double education. She graduated in painting at the Accademia di BelleArtiG.B. Cignaroli of Verona and studied as teatrodanza dancer at the Carolyn Carlson Academy in Arzo, Switzerland, and in her atelier in Paris.
Her artistic work was inspired by the fusion of these two realities as she uses the body as a narrative frame and photography and video as fortunate means of expression.
In all her works of art, Nature has always been an intense protagonist. She aims to seek a dialogue, a way to find her roots, an unconscious landscape that contributes to a reflection on the humankind. Pictures on the association between the subject and the background that produce unexpected results and an active conversation between the elements. Reflections on the relationship between man and nature, the deepest part of us, made of contrasts and contradictions, but familiar and inseparable.
Today her artistic practise has evolved her focus on the territory, the place of belonging, by developing projects that involve the mountain communities illustrated through the eyes of nature, people, their relationship and their history, their tradition and their changes.
Nature and Man are the cornerstones of her reflection, but she has changed the way of looking at them, the way of unveiling what is hidden behind the habit, the human being and his bond to his internal and external space.
In the latest years, she has worked with various galleries, festivals and Italian and international institutions.
She has exhibited at GalleriRostrum,Malmö, Sweden; AthensVideo/ArtFestival,Athene, Greece; Chapelle des Carmélites, TraverseVidéo, Toulouse,France; FotografiaEuropea, Reggio Emilia; Mirogallery Bologna Italy; RBcontemporary gallery Milan, Italy; Galleria Civica Trento, MART; MANIFESTA7, Italy; Kinosaki International Arts Center, Japan; Central European House of Photo, Bratislava, Slovakia; Kerry Film Festival, Ireland; Women in Photography,NewYork.
She has won important awards in Italy and abroad such as the firstREW[f]RomaeuropaWebfactory– Jpeggy Award,the jury’s special mention at Women In Photography International, NewYork and the first international Art Prize La Colomba, Venice.
Some of her masterpieces were published in famous paper and web magazines such as Vogue, INSIDEART, Polpettas magazine, Pizza magazinenewspaper on the Italian style and culture, Franzmagazine and also became key pictures for the communication and advertising campaign of importnat festivals like Tanzhaus Zürich,Switzerland, and Festival Dancebase, Edinburgh, UK.
