Silvia Gentili is a multidisciplinary artist, independent curator and workshop facilitator. Her practice explores stories that belong to the personal and political realm through the use of photography, film, performance, sound and text.
Her research investigates the concepts of trauma and memory in connection to the body, landscape and storytelling. Recently, her research has moved into the field of medical humanities. She is developing a methodology to elaborate a language that can express the emotions and physical perceptions of the sick body.
Gentili has exhibited her work internationally and gained a MA in Photography from London College of Communication, and previous to that a BA in Anthropology (University of the Studies of Rome La Sapienza) and a Diploma in Photography (IED Rome).
