Elena Lo Giudice, an Italian visual artist currently residing in Singapore, will be exhibiting a selection of her artworks from 29 May until 9 June 2023 at the Embassy of Italy in Singapore, as part of the Italian Festival programme.
Over the years, the artist has developed a body of work that is characterized by a profound sense of yearning and nostalgia for fleeting moments and lost things. By collecting and combining various images through photography and collage techniques, the artist creates a new reality that evokes a sense of familiarity yet appears displaced.
The use of colour and washi, a type of Japanese handmade paper, is integral to the artist's work. This material holds a special place in the artist's creative process, as it was her preferred medium during her childhood and serves as a reminder of her imaginative wanderings as a young girl living in Singapore during the 1980s.
Elena Lo Giudice (b. 1981) is an Italian visual artist. Born in Hong Kong, she spent her early childhood there for five years before relocating to Singapore, where she resided for five more years. At the age of ten, she moved with her family to Umbria, Italy, where she was exposed to a different way of living. After spending nearly two decades there, she moved to The Netherlands. In 2017 she returned to Singapore, where she currently resides and continues to create art. Her multicultural upbringing is reflected throughout her work.
