Zest 30-31.08.2019Paola Mongelli (Turin 1972). Photographer and visual artist, she graduates at the Albertina School of fine arts of Turin in the 90’s, specializing in black and white printing techniques. Her research focuses on human condition, often evoking correlations among human being, nature and its elements; a dimension in which the exploration of the self and the observation of the world end to overlie. In her recent works she explores the world of color, and the relationship between body, movement and space, expressing herself also through drawing and performance language. From 2008 she organizes numerous seminar and academic classes about photography and education of vision, pursuing a dialogue with artists, writers, cultural and social contests. Her works are included in many private collections and foundations. www.paolamongelli.com
