Elena Damiani

  • Transforming found materials into collages, sculptures, videos, and installations, Elena Damiani critically addresses our understanding of the present via the potentiality of images from the past. She is interested in revising subjects such as geology, archaeology, and cartography—by reworking materials such as books, photographs, video footage, and public records—in order to stage fictions where multiple topographies and times unfold together, hovering between an indeterminate past and present. She aims to explore the ways in which specific materials can be staged as incomplete and ambiguous when extracted from their contexts, then recomposed into works that point out the manipulability of cultural objects and information, thereby forming new memory paths and connections.
