How many times is once more?, 2018 Stone and photographic prints
Giulia Cacciuttolo’s work explores the complex issues surrounding the collection of archival artefacts, examining the decisions behind the selection and exclusion of objects integral to telling stories about our past. Are these stories always told from a single point of view? What happens to the pieces of history excluded from these selections?
Cacciuttolo’s installations question how we define an archive today and how they can be used to give a voice to under-represented ethnic and cultural minorities.
Giulia Cacciuttolo was born in Italy where she obtained a BA in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome. In 2015, Cacciuttolo moved to London where she obtained her first MA in Painting at the Wimbledon College of Arts and her second MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins (2019).
Cacciuttolo’s practice, which started with painting, has shifted towards sculpture and installations, following her need to have a stronger relationship with the space and the materials.
She has taken part in national and international exhibitions and artist residencies, such as the Artists Access to Art Colleges (AA2A) which provides placements for visual artists and designer-makers in Higher and Further Education institutions across England. Cacciuttolo is currently one of the four AA2A artists-in-residence at the University of Hertfordshire.
This artwork was selected for the first Hertfordshire Open Exhibition. The exhibition online galleries are hosted between www.uharts.co.uk and www.stalbansmuseums.org.uk and will be launched in stages throughout April 2020.
Over 180 artists with links to Hertfordshire submitted their work to be part of the inaugural exhibition. Chosen by an independent panel of judges, the exhibition features 80 stunning works by the 50 selected artists, creating an exciting mix of work by established artists alongside emerging talent and first-time exhibitors.
