Paola Pivi



Paola Pivi (b. 1971 in Milan, Italy) is an Italian multimedia artist who lives and works in Anchorage, Alaska. Pivi engages in a wide range of art techniques, including photography, sculpture and performance. Some of her works contain performance elements, at times involving live animals and people. 
 
Paola Pivi first gained international awareness at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 for her surprising and perplexing photograph of a donkey floating on a small boat. The work revealed Pivi's playful and unexpected approach to creating art.

Pivi studied engineering in Milan and later decided to pursue an education in art at the Academy of Brera. Her interest in science and art, and her sense of humor, lead to unique and sometimes comically absurd creations. Pivi’s large-scale projects exhibit incongruous aspects of our everyday world, allowing the viewer to absorb unexpected and fantastic transformations in experimental playgrounds.

Pivi's works can be seen at Galerie Perrotin in New York.


P.S. I have indicated title, medium, size and edition info above when I could locate it.
