Fabian Albertini (b.1965) is an Italian artist based between Reggio Emilia and Rio de Janeiro.
Albertini’s mixed-media works manipulate mental perception, movement, the relationship between man and environment through dialogues between art and spirituality. Combining photography, sculptures and overpainted photographs, her projects often show fieldwork in remote locations – such as deserts, volcanos and rainforest. Her common materials include items found in everyday life—like stones, paper, metals, mirrors, glass and wood.
In her early work she has explored the complex of consciousness creating performances interpreted by contemporary dancers inside the environment, publishing five books on this theme from 2000 to 2010.
