Carola Cappellari is a visual artist and photographer currently based in London.
In her artistic practice, she alternates autobiographical and documentary approaches to investigate themes of health, identity and belonging.
Primarily using herself as a subject, her introspective journey of self-discovery often results in surreal, evocative images of everyday life. Different media and objects, including mundane domestic references, are often combined into installations, providing the viewers with a more tangible and personal experience. Carola has gained particular interest in the notion of family, understood both in its traditional meaning and also in more modern definitions. The reality of the family has become the background to explore themes related to mental and physical health and their impact within and beyond the family boundaries.
