Artist, Naples

Guest 2018
Master symposium

Raffaela Naldi Rossano is an artist from Naples, Italy. In 2016 she concluded an MA in Photography at Goldsmiths, University of London with a research about post-historical identity and generational transmission called Say Hello Back to a Phantomatic Present: Perform Heritage and Inhabit History. Graduated in Psychology, her artistic practice is based on a analytical psychology, social and humanistic theoretical background. With her work she intends to provoke a discussion about various themes such as identity, relationships and social culture, through a range of mediums, from installation to video, sculpture, text and performance, in order to create and re-create meanings, individually and collectively. Raffaela Naldi Rossano is co-fonder and director of Residency 80121, residency project which aims to cultivate a dialogue between artists and various spaces to support the discussion and exhibition of contemporary art through a direct approach and engagement with each setting to encourage a cultural, but also interdisciplinary exchange in a framework of a humanistic, feminist and ecological discourse. Recent exhibitions include: You Complete Me, Museo Apparente, Napoli (2018) and May the bridges I burn light the way, Manifesta 5x5x5, Palermo, (2018).
