About

Valentina Lapolla is an artist, environmental engineer and researcher.
She was educated as an artist by joining the SenzaDimoraFissa group of artists and activists, founded by the photographer Andrea Abati, addressing social and political issues in the public space.
Her works have addressed political and existential questions about the relation between the self and the Other, often referencing to feminist philosophy and theory of sexual difference, past and present colonialism, power structures and the process of becoming a subject in relation to the social, environmental and technological context.
Her practice spans photography, performance, installation and technical investigation.
She is part of the group of artists FAMA – four artists for a metastable art, together with Rachel Morellet, Eva Sauer and Tatiana ViIllani, working around the concept of metastability in the art practice.
