Alice Pedroletti (Alice)

Alice Pedroletti (Alice) investigates the meaning of archiving as an art practice, focusing on identity and memory, and the relationship between artworks-viewers. Her projects range from architecture to urban planning, from geography to geopolitics: the attention is on the connection between photography and sculpture, installations and participatory projects. Alice’s work mixes reality with digital and imaginative projects or future-oriented archives; some of her recent works explore the cognitive autonomy of thought in machine learning systems. She has been investigating the concept of islands: metaphorically, with deliberately ephemeral outcomes, and tangibly, living in complex territories in which the body is called upon to rediscover its direct relationship with the surrounding environment. She won the Italian Council IX Research Grant, program to promote Italian contemporary art in the world.
