Paola Anziché obtained a degree at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and the Staedelschule, Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Meisterschülerin, Frankfurt, Germany. She lives in Turin and Milano.
In summer 2019 my monograph La terra suona / The Earth Sounds, has been published by Viaindustriae publishing.
My art practice is based on making soft and tactile sculptures, starting from a research process where I explore the potentialities for art to be able to relate to different cultural fields - as popular believes, ancient rites, bio-architecture and science. The ecological point perspective I adopt also implies observation of climate change, political and environmental problems, as well as urban and territorial transformations.
