Micol Muratori is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher currently based in Modena, Italy. After attaining her diploma in Visual Arts at the Liceo Artistico Adolfo Venturi, in July 2021 she graduated in Fine Art from Lancaster University.
The aim of Micol’s artwork is to unsettle established divisions between the emotional and physical body and prompt the viewers to question their own relationship with themselves and others.
Her works mainly consist of sketchbooks and sculptural/collage cut-outs. The themes interesting her and characterising her work/research are the human body and its instability in society, its conflicting emotions and carnal desires. These subjects are represented as infused with a highly expressive quality and with a surrealist work process where conscious and unconscious realms are merged.
