GIULIA PARLATO

Infos

Giulia Parlato (b.1993) is an Italian visual artist based in London and Palermo.

She graduated from the BA(Hons) Photography at London College of Communication in 2016 and from the MA Photography at the Royal College of Arts in 2019.

Her practice delves into histories, myths and cultural heritage, involving photography and video. She analyses the historical use of photography as a document of truth, specifically in its scientific and forensic uses, and challenges this language, by creating a new space in which staged scenes take place. The melancholic and frustrating state, caused by humans’ impossibility to understand the past constitutes the foundation of her work. 

Giulia’s work is shown nationally and internationally in group and solo exhibitions including The Phair (Turin, 2021) Podbielski Contemporary Gallery (Milan, 2021), Photo London Fair (London, 2020), Photo Fringe (Brighton, 2020), Palazzo Rasponi 2 (Ravenna, 2020), Galleria Cavour for Photo Open Up (Padova, 2020) and Gare Du Nord for Paris Photo (Paris 2019); and featured extensively in printed and online publications. She is the recipient of the BJP International Photography Award (2020), the Innovate Grant  (2020), Camera Work Award (2020) and the Carte Blanche Éstudiants Award (2019). She was recently selected by CAMERA - Italian Center of Photography - for the European programme Futures. 

Talks and Commissions include Paris Photo, The Photographers' Gallery, Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts, and Art Licks.

She is a founder member of Ardesia Projects, a curatorial platform dedicated to contemporary photography, and of the Carte Blanche Collective.  

Giulia's work is held in public and private collections.

Laureata in fotografia al London College of Communication (2016) e al Royal College of Arts (2019).


La sua pratica analizza l’uso storico delle immagini come documento di verità, in particolare nei suoi usi scientifici e forensi, e sfida questo linguaggio, creando un nuovo spazio in cui si svolge una messa in scena. Lo stato malinconico e frustrante causato dall’impossibilità umana di comprendere il passato costituisce il fondamento del suo lavoro, attraverso il quale approfondisce storie, miti e patrimonio culturale, usando fotografia e video.
