Works by Silvia Camporesi

Born in Forlì, where she now lives and works, in 1973, Silvia Camporesi is a philosophy graduate who uses the languages of photography and video, often accompanied by self-portrayal, to build tales drawn from a mixture of myth, literature, religions, and reality. Her searchings move along a thin line forming the boundary between imagination and reality, wakefulness and dreaming, in contexts whose subject is always in debate with the natural element and intent on transcending the limits of the body and the mind. Since 2000, her work has been displayed in numerous exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad. In 2007, she was awarded the Celeste photography prize, while in 2009 and 2010 she was among the finalists for the Talent Prize and the Terna Prize respectively. In the autumn of 2011, she participated in a résidence d’artiste at the Chambre Blanche, Quebec. In 2015 she finished her new work “Atlas Italiae”, an atlas where she has collected her innovative and unique views of Italy that embody the various meanings of a wider artistic and anthropological reflection on her country’s identity. Her research poses questions on the future by orienting the lens at the most hidden and less visible parts of our history.
