Graduated in Philosophy and Visual Arts, from the mid-90s to 2012 she trained and worked as an actress and director in contemporary theatre. At the same time, preferring the use of drawing, installation and performance, she develops her own path as a visual artist that leads her to exhibit in solo exhibitions, group shows and art fairs at national and international level. Her works are part of some important collections in Rome, Paris and London.
Through different techniques, materials and expressive languages, Alice Padovani's research originates from the archetypes of wonder and repulsion. With a spirit of classification similar to that of the neo-seventeenth century, she combines the creative impulse with the rigour of the scientific method. Passing through plant installations, entomological assemblages and performances with live insects, in her works she proposes fragments of a decontextualized nature and creates collections that are, at the same time, heaps and traces, where natural and personal memory merge to become the point of origin.
