Maria Rapicavoli

Artist's Website

My photo and video work explore conditions and experiences of power, alienation, invisibility and displacement, through a critique of global economic and political systems. My installations call into question dominant historical narratives, disrupting perceived notions of the post-war era with my investigations into the materiality of evidence and the status of knowledge. My current project draws attention to airspace as a place of military power and global economic struggle and to all the invisible maneuvers that happen in the air. I seek to make tangible the ways these actions, taking place out of sight, invisible to the majority of the global population, impact our everyday lives. My intent is never strictly documentary not didactic in tone, is more an invite for the viewers to reconsider the present through a critical analysis of the past.
