Anna Ricciardi

Anna Ricciardi is an artist and writer fascinated by questions of liveness, place, animacy and intimacy. She has re-created out-of-circulation ‘bad taste’ postcards for the cultural ‘re-wilding’ of tourist hotspots, tended to roadside floral tributes and imagined landscapes suffering from folklore burnout. Currently she's working with spaces of entanglement and proximities of co-presence that place the body and its stories at the constitutive, performative and mediated margins of culture and nature. Anna studied BA Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts, London, and MA Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths, University of London. She lives and works between London and Kent.
