Fiamma Montezemolo

  • Born in Rome, Fiamma Montezemolo is both a cultural anthropologist (PhD, University of Naples)and an artist (MFA, San Francisco Art Institute). Not surprisingly then, she situates her art practice as a critical response to the “ethnographic turn” that was prevalent in contemporary art during the 1990s. In addition to ethnography—a research method adopted as a “medium” by many artists—Montezemolo works with various media including installation, cartography, video, digital photography, industrial materials, performance, and archival documents. Her art practice straddles various disciplines, sensibilities, and methodologies, including institutional critique, social art, and indigenous media.
