Postcolonial art production
Johannesburg (South Africa)
Bianca Baldi is a South African artist who deals with hidden infrastructures and narratives in her films, installations, photographs and images. Evoking the histories of film, studio photography and Trompe-l'œil, she positions carefully chosen objects and images revealing complex webs of political, economic and cultural influences. 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). Her work has been featured in large international exhibitions such as the 11th Rencontres de Bamako (Mali), 11th Shanghai Biennale (China), the 8th Berlin Biennale (Germany) and group exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bern (Switzerland), Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp (Belgium), Kunstverein Braunschweig and Kunstverein Frankfurt (Germany). Recent solo exhibitions include Versipellis at Superdeals, Brussels (Belgium), “Eyes in the Back of Your Head”, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof (Germany) and “Pure Breaths”.
