Bianca Baldi (South Africa, 1985) lives and works in Brussels. In her films, installations, photographs and images she addresses hidden infrastructures and narratives of power evoking the histories of film, studio photography and trompe-l’œil. She positions carefully chosen objects and images revealing complex webs of political, economic and cultural influences.
Baldi obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 2007 from the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town, South Africa and completed her studies at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Her work has been featured in large international exhibitions such as the 11th African Biennial of Photography (Bamako), the 11th Shanghai Biennale, the 8th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art and group exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bern, Extra City Kunsthal Antwerp, Kunstverein Braunschweig and Kunstverein Frankfurt. Recent solo exhibitions include Versipellis at Superdeals in Brussels, Eyes in the Back of Your Head, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof and Pure Breaths in Swimming Pool in Sofia. Play-White, a body of work first presented as part of Alias in 2019, will be presented as a solo exhibition at the Grazer Kunstverein (AT) in 2020.
