ARTIST STATEMENT

Sara Marinangeli (born 1993 in Macerata, Italy) is a photographer and video artist, based in London.

In 2016 she obtained her BA with Honor in Fine Art, in Florence, after taking part in the Erasmus + project in FAMU, Academy of Performing Arts, Prague.

In 2019 Sara graduated from the Royal College of Art, MA in Photography.

Selected for the SW Darkroom Residency Award and The Labyrinth Lab / RCA Award 2019. Her work has been shown in Italy, England and Czech Republic.

Recurring themes of her work are the memory, time and loss; indelible marks that are part of everybody's life.

In her practice she combines portrait, landscape and still-life photography, using analog mediums.Films give her the chance to underline the connection between the handcraft and the passing of time. The time spent in the darkroom gives another value and greater importance to the final work.

As Brian Dillon states, In the Dark Room, the work in the darkroom becomes a metaphor of the artist's memory.

Through her practice, she intends to give a new life to processes, moments, people or feeling that are part of our past.
