Margherita Moscardini

2014-2015: Spring

Margherita Moscardini (born in Italy, 1981) investigates relationships among transformation processes in the urban, social and natural order. She often focuses on abandoned locations and areas undergoing demolition, whereby the demolitions’ waste systems become a paradigm of local complexities. Her work generally focuses on long-term projects in which the context itself becomes the medium.

Moscardini obtained a bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, and attended the Advanced Course in Visual Arts with Yona Friedman at the Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como.In the last few years she has developed projects in South Korea, Turkey, Bulgaria, France, and Italy. Her work has recently been exhibited at the Italian Institute of Culture in Istanbul; MACRO, Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; ArtToday CCA in Plovdiv, Bulgaria; SongEun Art Space in Seoul, South Korea; Schauwerk Foundation in Stuttgart; Palazzo Reale in Milan; and the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation in Florence. 

She is currently a guest at MMCA Changdong, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea, where she is working on her newest project.
