Ludovica Anversa

(Milano, 1996)


Ludovica Anversa lives and works in Milan.
Her work, in a sort of burial and exhumation of the image, alternates stratifications and erasures, bringing to light a disturbing and sensual imagery.
Overlapping and fragmented figures, contaminating each other, suggest a subterranean complexity made up of bodily and visceral elements: hybrid presences, between the living organism and the antropomorphic object, thus emerge from backgrounds full of negated figurations.
Escaping a determined narrative, her paintings generate reminiscences similar to the visionary memory of a dream, intense and indefinite at the same time.

Anversa studied at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) in Milan where she has been Adrian Paci. She participated in the artist residency programme at Palazzo Monti (Brescia, 2020). Her work has been exhibited in Italy and abroad in galleries, foundations, and artist-run-spaces. Her most recent exhibitions include: Les Dances Nocturnes at East Contemporary (Entreveaux, 2021); The Wall Project No.10 at ArtNoble (Milan, 2021); Entr~Acte at Galleria Renata Fabbri (Milan, 2021); Basta at Palazzo Monti (Brescia, 2021); L’Armonia at Manifattura Tabacchi (Florence, 2021); Transatlantico at Mana Contemporary (Jersey City, 2020); Atomi at Galleria Giorgio Galotti (Milan, 2020). In 2018, she was a participant of the Academiae Youth Art Biennial (Fortezza)
