Environmental Art installation
Elena Redaelli is a nomadic maker and researcher. Her practice is based on textile sculpture and installation created through a deep relationship with place (environmental art) and society (participatory, socially engaged projects). In her projects she explores matter, transformation, processes of generation and decay involving different levels of control and challenging the boundaries of authorship and active intervention. The act of art making becomes an interrogative process within a new environment and her personal way to get closer to new cultures and people. The material is considered as a carrier of meaning, it is chosen for its potential to narrate stories, relate to people, place, tradition and history. She cares about environmental sustainability researching and promoting the use of natural, recycled and local materials, and she feeds her practice with multicultural influences. Elena holds a degree in Sculpture, Academy of fine art in Rome and a MFA from UCA, London.
