Carla Geronimi, b.1998 in Switzerland.
I am Carla Geronimi, a Franco-Swiss-Argentinian artist based in London. My practice is multi-disciplinary and uses a wide range of mediums from moving image, performance, collage, to sound. My works all aim to create worlds of imaginary places, fictional stories and creature-like characters such as puppets, masks or inanimate objects. I am strongly influenced by Surrealism and explore similar themes such as dreams, identity and memory, with a constant interest in anthropology and psychology. I like to question those ideas with the use of non-coherent story lines, symbolism and absurd narratives with a desire to evoke, to suggest and to stimulate imagination to better understand reality.
My works have been showcased in various places around the world, such as at the Festival International du Film de Nancy in France, Dar Diwani in Mozambique, Marienbad Film Festival in Czech Republic, Gallery 46 and Iklectik Arts Lab in London. My pieces were also broadcast for three consecutive years on Resonance Extra Radio for International Women’s Day 2018, 2019 and 2020. After a BA (Hons) in Sound Arts & Design at London College of Communication (UAL), I am currently undertaking a MA in Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.
