A bit about Elena...
"Elena Cecchinato was born in Venice, Italy. She studied Chinese and Korean painting at Korio University, South Korea before obtaining an Ma in History of Art of Africa and Asia from SOAS (University of London). Her work explores the cross narratives existing in the construction of identity, culture, belonging and ‘otherness’, the private and the political by creating a sort of zero degree transition area where the participants are called to experience, read and interpret. As a ‘multi-vidual’ and cross-cultural negotiator of meaning, she exposes the intersectionality of the plurilogics of humanity. For Elena art is a way to explore and expose the contradictions and similarities within different cultural practices, a way to find unity in the fragmentation of life. Recently her focus has been on the themes of invisibility, transformation and abstractions.
Cecchinato works across different mediums, primarily drawing, but also painting, automatic writing, print, installation, video, sound and live art.
Her works have been shown internationally as well as in the Uk. She has shown in London at the Westbourne Studios, Area 10Ps and The Rug Factory. She has worked with the Royal Hospital for Integrated Medicine and the Warwick Festival of Literature and Spoken Word. The Museum of Everything has also featured Elena’s works, as part of its exhibition at The Tate Modern ‘No soul for sale’. She has shown at ‘Les Rencontres d’Arles’ international festival of photography (France) “Transpadovano” at Palazzo Moroni, Padova (Italy) and ‘Turf’ at Cutlog NY (USA). Most recently she has shown her sound painting at 'Art in the Age of Now', an historical show in the derelict Fulham Town Hall curated by Ben Moore of Artbelow..
