Federica Di Carlo (1984)
Works between Milan and Rome
The observation of the world’s balance is the basis of Federica Di Carlo’s research.
By investigating the limits but as well as the connections between existence, the human being and nature, for years she has faced the tension that is generated between them, often collaborating with scientists and physicists of various research centers in the world for the creation of artworks.
She does not use a specific media, but often builds worlds in which to immerse oneself, as in her environmental installations where an element like light becomes matter to be modulated, shaped through knowledge and study of physical laws. Her works narrate zones of interference that science tends to reject because they are outside predetermined schemes. These paradoxes become material for the artist to investigate and reflect on other meanings.
