Versi, 2021

Born in 1973 in Milan, where she lives and works, Marcella Vanzo trained as an anthropologist and artist. La di lei is a multidisciplinary practice that includes videos, installations, performances, poetry and participatory art. You investigate the different human dimensions, from the social to the mythical, from the emotional to the political. In her works, truth and fiction come together in a dense plot that questions the representation of reality. Since 2019, a significant part of her practice has been dedicated to changing society through education, teacher training and participatory art projects. Her work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions including: #squola pubblic, PirelliHangar Bicocca 2020-21; “Radical”, Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti, Venice, 2019; “Landscape Festival”, Capri, 2018; Jakarta Biennale, 2017; Manifesta11, Zurich, 2016; Perspectif Cinema, Center Pompidou, 2015; Prague Biennale 2011; Performa 09; Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, Walker Art Center, Reina Sofia Museum, Galleria Continua and numerous video festivals.
