Alumna of Villa Medicis, Académie de France in Rome (year 2017-2018), Giulia Andreani attended the Accademia di belle arti in Venice before moving to Paris to pursue her studies in contemporary art history at the Sorbonne where she focused on the School of Leipzig.
Artist-researcher, since 2010 she has been compiling an ‘atlas’ consisting of images and documents: historic archives, still frames, family pictures - representing the matrix of an oeuvre in constant ramification.
Some images acquire an ever evolving importance: they are sorted, recomposed and reproduced on canvas through the subjective filter of a specific palette whose only color is grey of Payne.
Andreani confronts history to its dependency towards image, underscoring the shortcomings of our collective memory.
