Carola Cappellari is an Italian photographer currently based in London. She alternates autobiographical and documentary approaches to investigate themes of identity and belonging. She often uses herself as a subject within narratives resulting in surreal and evocative images. Different media and objects, including mundane domestic references, are combined into installations, providing the viewers with a more tangible and personal experience.
Carola has been selected as one of the Aesthetica Magazine Next Generation artists 2019 and her work was featured in the issue 90 of the magazine.
