Emanuela Barilozzi Caruso was born in Rome. She lives and works in Palermo.
She Graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in 2018, after studying painting with Alberto Garutti. Her work is characterized by the use of photography, drawing and action that adapt to the situations in which she finds herself interacting. The interest of Barilozzi Caruso focuses on the relational processes experienced in first person with a time that is always very extensive and diversified, whose result is revealed with works on paper, photographic prints and performative actions.
“I only believe in art and without it I feel lost. I find no meaning in a life without books and paintings / drawings. As far as I know I can do nothing else, I have never wanted to learn anything else for biological reasons concerning my human being and because I doubt reality, even if deep down I know that even works of art, in a certain sense, they are an illusion ”.
