About

Laura Gianetti was born in Livorno (Italy) in 1980.

She studied Natural Sciences at Pisa University and she graduated in Painting with a Masters in Photography from the Fine Art Academy in Rome in 2008 with the thesis “The heretical photography”. After the BFA, she moved to Berlin where she worked as visual artist and photoreporter for musical and artistic events for more than 8 years. She collaborated among others with Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Bpigs, Node Center for Curatorial Studies, CTM Festival, Grimmuseum, Factory Art, Month of Performance Art in Berlin, Sonic Acts Festival in Amsterdam, Spot U Art in Brussels and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde.

Her projects deal with photography, painting, drawing, video and installation often focusing the attention on the interaction existing between human social behaviour and nature. Taking advantage from innate primal rituals, she presents the possibility of “re-wilding” the human, of unbecoming from societal expectations, starting from our relationship to the natural world to our own corporeal existence.

Her works are collected in private collections and published in magazines, newspapers, books, CDs, vinyl records, music videos.
She showed in galleries and museums like among others Palazzo delle Esposizioni, the Museo Hendrik C. Andersen (Galleria Nazionale D’Arte Moderna), Complesso Monumentale Sant’Andrea al Quirinale in Rome, Grimmuseum in Berlin, Galleria d’Arte Moderna alle Ciminiere in Catania (Premio Nazionale delle Arti) and the Ancienne Quincaillerie van AA in Brussels, where she received the grant as the Best Artist under 35 years.

She currently moves her studio in Rome where in addiction she is teaching “painting and drawing techniques” in an Art Institute.
