MARTA DELL’ANGELO

Born in 1970 in Pavia, Italy. Lives and works in Milan, Italy

 

Collage vivant, 2017

 

A practicable collage. More than 100 colour and black- and-white images at almost actual size, cropped and specularly printed, are suspended in three-dimensional space. Portions of the body, intersect each other with objects and elements of different origins and epochs, placed between order, disorder and randomness.

One whistle 100 Dram, 2017

In collaboration with Aleksey Manukyan

 

One whistle one euro is a street performance in which the artists will produce whistles with Armenian apricot seeds and Italian acorns, selling them to the public. Anyone can buy them, and the whistle produced by playing it will resound as a sort of call of the wild, becoming part of the work.

A frequent element in Dell'Angelo’s work are monumental female bodies; represented in moments of intimacy, emphasized by the white backgrounds, with positions often broken down and graceless. The body is no more than itself. She focuses on the forms and their physical presence that is simultaneously, a symbol of an existential status. The starting point of the work is digital photography, reworked and reassembled by the computer. Painting is the final action in a process that sometimes stops before the pictorial stage, materializing into audio works, video and low-resolution prints on blotter or tissue paper. This realization phase of the process is characterized by the disintegration of pixels transformed in expressive elements. In parallel  to her objective work, dell'Angelo subjectivizes the body through the realization of performances.
