About

Valentina Lapolla is an artist working with video, photography, sound and light installations and electronic devices. The performative power of visual, linguistic and technological structures is at the center of her work, with reference to feminism, decolonial practices and political ecology. In recent years she has built various ad hoc, self-produced and ephemeral technological devices as a poetic and political way of dealing with technology and the natural/artificial relationship.  Starting from a personal story, she dealt with colonial history, interested in how it is still active and powerful in the present, through the scientific, linguistic and technological apparatus.

Her work has been shown in galleries, museums and institutions, including: Museo de Historia Natural, Universitat de Valencia, Valencia; Art Pavillon, Belgrade; Villa Romana, Florence; La Déviation, Marseille; Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato; Casa Masaccio Arte Contemporanea, San Giovanni Valdarno; Fondazione Fotografia Modena; GAMC Lorenzo Viani – Viareggio; Tenuta dello Scompiglio, Lucca; Dryphoto arte contemporanea, Prato; Museo de la Universidad de Alicante, Alicante; Art Photography Festival, Vilnius.
