In January 2008, on the occasion of the Bologna Art Fair, I displayed Marzia Migliora’s drawings in my home. The drawings, populated by strange creatures in a grotesque and ironic atmosphere, depict the vices, obsessions and little secrets of the imaginary inhabitants of a building without walls, surprised in their domestic intimacy.
Marzia Migliora was born in Alessandria in 1972, and lives and works in Turin.
Although she is a young artist, she is already well-established in the national and international art scene.
Amongst her most recent personal exhibitions are: 2010 Forever Overhead, Lia Rumma Gallery, Naples; 2009 Forme Nel Verde, San Quirico d’Orcia; 2008 My No Man’s Land, Art Agens Gallery Hamburg; 2007 Bianca e il suo Contrario, Lia Rumma Gallery, Milan; 2006 Tanatosi Fondazione Merz, Turin; 2005, The Agony and The Ecstasy, FACT, Liverpool and Download Now, Italian Cultural Institute, London; 2004 Appassionata, MART, Rovereto; 2004 Pari o Dispari, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; 2001 Punto Ccroce, Civic Gallery of Modern & Contemporary Art, Turin.
She has taken part in significant national and international exhibitions since the end of the Nineties, including: 2009 Emerging Talents.
