Maria Luigia Gioffrè

Maria Luigia Gioffrè is an Italian artist based in London. Her multidisciplinary practice focuses on narration, time and absence, which she explores through repetition, gesture and duration.

She is particularly interested in the inaccurancy of grammar and signs as potential for poetry, which springs from scraps and glitches of meaning, and which lead to what she says is “the impossibility to get an image through representation.”

Gioffrè was an award winner of the Celeste Prize in 2017, in the Installation, Sculpture and Performance category. Her works have been recently part of Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, Art Night Associate at Art Night London and Zürich meets London – A Festival of Two Cities.
