Egle Oddo b. 1975 in Italy.
Her work focuses on linear and non-linear narration as an art form. Interested in operational realism, meant as the presentation of the functional sphere in an aesthetic arrangement and its inter-relations, she combines photography, moving image, installation, sculpture, environmental art, and experimental live art.
In her pieces industrial production morphs towards delicate handcraft, life forms appear and emerge out of sculptures and objects, film photography appropriate digital images, selected trash mix with fashion, precious edible minerals and ancestral recipes are served as part of ritual meals.
Her work is present at international biennials, Museums and relevant institutions, as well as cutting edge and independent alternative spaces and events: Third Space. Helsinki; Manifesta 12 program 5x5x5, Palermo; CrossSections at WUK Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna; Baltic Biennale, Saint Petersburg; 54th Venice Biennale; Casablanca Biennale; Biquini Wax gallery, Mexico City.
She moved to Helsinki in 2006 and founded Namastic Art Collective. She is member of Catalysti Association of Transcultural Artists in Finland; Pixelache trans-disciplinary platform for experimental art, research and activism; Muu association of professional artists; Maatiainen association for the protection of Finnish Local Species.
