Eva Marisaldi‘s work focuses on the modalities of communication and language, and on the rules that influence our behaviour. She uses different media such as drawing, photography, sculpture, video, installations, kinetic art and performance to decode, in an almost anthropological way, what lies behind conventions. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and DAMS in Bologna, where you made your debut in 1988 at the “Biennale dei giovani artisti dell’Europa Mediterranea” or “Biennial of Young Artists in Mediterranean Europe”.
