Noemi Priolo was born in Palermo (ITA) in 1990. After her graduation at the Academy of fine art
of Palermo, she moved to London, where she lived for three years and then in Portsmouth, where
she currently works as studio manager for the artists Laura Ford and Andrew Sabin.
Her work is based on a concentric thought able to channel any disturbance and enchantment into a
close and necessary relationship between human beings and the world they perceive: a dialogue
between the man and the unachievable ideal of humanity set in a sinful and guilty culture. The story
of men denying to themselves the freedom of being animals, which inevitably turns the reality into
Noemi faces these themes adopting a symbolic language. The materials she uses play a role of
ancestral connection with the primitive aspect of human beings, where both the repressed
unconscious and what is ordinary find relief. Each thought has a shape created by means of specific
co-original elements: fabric, silicon, feathers, polystyrene, resin.
Her artistic path has started in the Academy environment of Palermo, where she took part in various
group exhibitions, such as DOMINA23 at Zino Palace and Invasioni Urbane at Polo Riso.
Moreover, she was listed among the finalists of the Catel prize at the Scuderie Aldobrandini in
Frascati in 2014 and of the Fisad International Festival of Art and Design school prize in 2015.
Noemi organised her first solo show in 2016 at the Davide Paludetto Contemporary Art in Turin.
