Marinella Senatore is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is characterized by a strong participatory dimension and a constant dialogue between history, popular culture and social structures. After the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples (1994-1997), the Conservatory of Music (1997) and the National school of Cinema in Rome (1999-2001), she is dedicated to visual art, where she uses different media: action, video, photography, installation, sculpture, painting, drawing, collage. Marinella Senatore’s art is pure energy; an energy that flows from the short circuit between different elements she relates in the same scene, real and virtual, indeed, the artist takes on the role of activator of a mechanism (the work of art) whose purpose is to produce a transforming force from the encounter of the elements included in it; a force that then propagates in the surrounding reality until it reaches the viewer.

Her work has been exhibited widely throughout Italy and abroad, including: Manifesta 12; Centre Pompidou; MAXXI Museum; Queens Museum; Kunsthaus Zurich; Castello di Rivoli; Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen; Palais de Tokyo; Schirn Kunsthalle; Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago; High Line, NY; Madre Museum; Faena Art Forum; Bozar; Kunstverein Ar/Ge Kunst; Petach Tikva Museum; Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation; Serpentine Gallery; CCA Tel Aviv; Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; ICA, Richmond; BAK Utrecht; Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo Palazzo Grassi; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen; Moderna Museet; UABB Bi Shenzhen; Biennale de Lyon; Thessaloniki Biennale; Liverpool Biennale; Shiryaevo Biennale; Athens Biennale; Havana Biennale; Göteborg Biennial; Contour – Biennial of the Moving Image, Mechelen; Bienal de Cuenca; 54th Venice Biennale.
