Valeria Medici is an emerging conceptual artist whose practise focusses on the externalisation of visceral experiences and sensations in emotionally charged compositions. She uses a variety of approaches and media, including photography, video, printmaking and performance.
She pushes and analyses her creative impulses and methods by using objects, materials and processes to interrogate the intention behind the works. Through this interrogation and research, she identified that the production of multimedia pieces playfully engage, disengage and interact with one another, as do the variety of methods and techniques. This playful interplay informs her methodology and lines of enquiry.
Dreams and memories merge in fantastical reproductions. The use of offal and meat are a strong subconscious act. Being the daughter of doctors, she has always been exposed to medical books and tools, which are increasingly appearing in her work.
Originally from Palermo, Sicily, she has established herself in the UK in 2015. Currently studying for a degree at the University of Northampton under the BA Fine Art Course, her identity as an artist and as a person is in an evolutionary phase.
Among other roles, she is a trustee at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art and President of the UoN Art Society. Her active involvement in the Northamptonshire Art Community both as an artist and networker has brought her to collaborate with local artists, communities, and organisations as well as being involved in group exhibitions on a national level.
