Giulia Andreani

Giulia Andreani (b.1985) Venice, Italy, forges intimate dialogues between past and present, unearthing buried narratives as a form of resistance. Describing her practice as ‘painting with photographs’, Andreani’s portentous oeuvre repurposes personal memorabilia and archival images to address forgotten histories through a feminist lens.
In ‘Les Faiseuses (n.u.d.m.)’ (2022), Andreani presents the viewer with a pair of portraits. Reflecting early photographic aesthetics, Andreani renders the figures in Payne’s grey, a colour that she uses almost exclusively. She then layers circles of pink, brown and moss green atop the male portrait – obscuring a portion of the man’s face – and places a column of squares in the same shades on the woman’s torso, imbuing her subject with a sense of proud verticality. Inspired by the collages of Dadaist Hännah Höch, Andreani’s diptych questions representation of women throughout history, calling out underlying power dynamics and dismantling gender stereotypes.
Giulia Andreani has been the subject of solo exhibitions in public institutions such as Fondazione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia; Palazzo Grassi, Venice; Le Consortium, Dijon; Centre Pompidou, Paris. Her work is also held in illustrious public collections such as the Centre George Pompidou, Paris, FR; the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, FR; the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, IT; among others.
