MARILISA COSELLO



Marilisa Cosello (1978) graduated in Visual Arts at Sevenoaks School (UK), graduated in History of Cinema at the IED in Milan and obtained a Masters in Photography at the Noorderlicht School (NL). She studied with Francois Cheval at the Museé Nicephore Niepce (Chalon-sur-Saône, FR). She has exhibited in Italian and international institutions including: Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, Fondazione Francesco Fabbri in Pieve di Soligo (TV), Milan Photofestival, Lugano Photo Festival, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Central Dupon in Paris.

 

Trained in photography, fine arts and film, she worked for 5 years as a news photographer, before understanding that reality doesn't exist and therefore moving to a conceptual apapproach in her research and art practice. Her practice is characterized by body participation and performance construction, initiating a dialogue between history, culture and social structures. Rethinking the role of society as a family and the private as collective, Cosello's work merges forms of investigation over power, public and private superimposition, civil family rituals and collective archetypes, reflecting on the political nature of the individual body as a subject and the impact of power dynamics on the history of individuals and communities.
