Using photography, video, installation, and texts, Annie Ratti questions and rethinks contemporary human conflicts, uncertainties and social complexities, often transforming her private experience into a public or participatory event.Read More
Research has always played an important role in Ratti's practice, from her investigations into the migration of birds for an exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2000, to her study of Carla Lonzi's text, Let's Spit on Hegel, for a recent exhibition at Libreria delle donne di Milano, a historical feminist association, publishing company and bookshop. Her work is site-specific in both the choice of subject and the physical negotiation of the space. It is the subtlety of her deployment of design, craft and architectural intervention that seduces the viewer.
