In her films, photographs and installations, Bianca Baldi addresses hidden structures and narratives of power. She positions carefully chosen objects and images revealing complex webs of political, economic and cultural influences.In recent work she intertwines personal stories and literary figures, in a study of radical transgressions, camouflage, unspoken sadness and survival, drawing on historical and zoomorphic research to present a meditation on perception, embodiment, self-presentation, and the aesthetic thresholds of identity. Born in Johannesburg (South Africa), Baldi obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 2007 from the Michaelis School of Fine Art (Cape Town, South Africa) and completed her studies at the Städelschule(Frankfurt, Germany). She lives and works in Brussels(Belgium). Her work has been featured in exhibitions such as the 11th African Biennial of Photography (Bamako), the 11th Shanghai Biennale, the 8th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art and group exhibitions at Netwerk Aalst, Kunsthalle Bern, Extra City Kunsthal Antwerp, Kunstverein Braunschweig and Kunstverein Frankfurt. Recent solo exhibitions include Versipellis at Superdeals in Brussels, Eyes in the Back of Your Head, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof and Pure Breaths in Swimming Pool in Sofia. Play-White, a recent body of work will be presented as a solo exhibition at the Grazer Kunstverein (AT) in 2021. The forthcoming publication of the same title is co-edited by Netwerk Aalst and Grazer Kunstverein and will be launched in 2021.
