Valentina Murabito was born 1981 in Giarre, Italy. She lives and works in Berlin.
Murabito ́s photographic works show beings in metamorphosis from human to animal, heads of youths being reduced to powder, or magical four horned goats. Mythology and philosophy, painting and sculpture find perfect communion in her works. In the dark room the artist experiments with light and chemicals or works with silver nitrate, i.e. the essence of photography. These are unique copies, developed and modified in the laboratory either on baryta paper or on materials such as wood, metal or in this case cement, with some of the hand-printed analogue photography produced in exceptionally large formats. We are thrilled to showcase such an impressive work by an Italian artist for MIA PHOTO FAIR this year.
