biography


Elisabetta Di Maggio (Milano 1964) lives and works in  Venezia.

For many years, she has been working on a research that emphasizes two salient elements of life: the network of communications needed to transmit information and the time required for these actions to take place.

 She has been trying to exhibit the close connections among the plots, circuits, grids, structures and networks belonging to different environments, which are part of our existence and where we spend our time and our daily life.

The working method is always the same, she cuts different materials using a very sharp surgical scalpel. She works with a variety of materials, from tissue paper sheets, to small or huge vegetable leaves, soap, porcelain, and with different surfaces, including the plastered walls.

In this way her research becomes a metaphorical reflection on our human condition.
