Guta Galli’s artistic process engages with photography as a hybrid medium, constantly oscillating between the real and the fictional, what we see and what we do not see, and the tension between what is memory and what is invention.
As a women, she deals with the constant pressures of living in a misogynistic world where identity and image are often confused. Her research sheds feminist light and shades on how the female cultural misrepresentation leads to rape culture and sexual violence.
Expanding to performance and video, she faces the lenses in an attempt to partially abandon the power of the mediator and simultaneously experience and expose the vulnerability, violence and ambiguities that she discusses in her photographic work.
She has exhibited individually in Rotterdam (Brazil Rotterdam Festival / Netherlands) and São Paulo (Matilha Cultural and Legislative Assembly of São Paulo), and has also participated in several art fairs and group exhibitions in São Paulo (SP-ART, SP-ARTE FOTO, MIS), Rio de Janeiro (RIO-ART, RIO-ARTE FOTO), Brasília (CAIXA CULTURAL), Santiago (Chacco-Chile), Rome (Bienalle Internationale di Roma) and at the San Francisco Art Institute (Swell Gallery and Paul Sacks/Still Lights Galleries), where she is currently doing a Master of Fine Arts.
In São Paulo, she has done a graduate degree in Photography (FAAP) and is represented by Galeria Lume. She has worked as a Photography teacher for 2 years at Escola Panamericana de Artes, also in São Paulo.
