Paola Pivi (1971) is an Italian multimedia artist who lives and works in London. In her work, she uses a wide range of art techniques, such as photography, sculpture and performance. Some of her works contain performance elements, at times involving live animals and people. Working in a variety of media, she is best known for her enigmatic and witty photography. Her photographs are carefully and often ambitiously contrived; so, her artistic expression is not only the result of the picture but also the process of making what’s on the picture. In an early stage of her career she has exhibited internationally and is represented by galleries in Italy, Paris and Frankfurt. In 1999, she received a Golden Lion Award at the Venice Biennale.
