CV

Photography is Silvia Mariotti’s main, but not the only tool for her artistic research of the habitat surrounding us, identifying the linkages between artificial and natural. The photomechanic eye pauses on elusive atmospheres, anomalous elements or enigmatic situations; it strives to isolate the gaze from the clamor of life, stubbornly to slow down syncopated rhythm to grab those chips that – when considered individually – make up the fabric of existence, dotted with desires and longings, balances and contradictions, lights and shadows. In all her works, Silvia Mariotti tries to gather experience on places and people to better reflect the environmental and social situation in which we live.

Silvia Mariotti graduated in March 2005  in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino (IT) and in 2008 in Visual Arts. The main focus of her research is the analysis of an environment from a sociological as well as a historical point of view.

Through photography and its several possible representations, she tries to find the existing links in reality, providing the image, suggestions and the experience of emotions. In 2013, she won the first prize in the X edition of the Celeste Award for photography.

In 2016 she was selected for FAAP’s artistic residency in São Paulo and was a finalist in the IX edition of the Talent Prize in Rome. In 2017 she was selected for another residency program in São Paulo, Uberbau House. She exhibited in various galleries and public spaces, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lissone, the Fabbri Foundation of Pieve di Soligo (IT), Villa Manin in Passariano (IT), the Macro Museum in Rome and Palazzo Ducale of Urbino. In 2019, she was chosen as winner of the Level 0 prize by GNAM (National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rome) at the art fair Art Verona.
