Valentina Bonizzi

Scavando negli archivi e tra le storie delle comunità, il lavoro di Valentina Bonizzi mette in evidenza questioni di giustizia sociale, cercando di offrire risoluzioni attente e riflessive.

Digging into archives and the histories of communities, Valentina Bonizzi’s work highlights issues of social justice while trying to offer careful and thoughtful resolutions.

L’ibridismo, la migrazione e l’ambiente sono questioni fondamentali nel suo lavoro che a volte sono espresse attraverso interventi performativi. Lavorando soprattutto con la fotografia e con il cinema, il suo lavoro auto-riflessivo esplora il ruolo dell’immagine tecnica in tutte le sue forme espanse.

Hybridity, migration and the environment are key issues in her work that sometimes are expressed through performative interventions. Working mainly with photography and film, her practice self-reflectively explores the role of the technical image in all its expanded forms.

La sua ricerca indaga sulle pratiche cartografiche e scopre le potenzialità della democratizzazione la quale pone la ridefinizione artistica di un mezzo utilizzato in genere da urbanisti.

Her research investigates cartographic practices and uncovers the potentialities of democratization that lay in the artistic re-definition of a medium generally used by urban planners.
