Her revived self

27 July - 17 August 2013

Angelico works across a variety of media, formats and processes that involve both individual and collaborative practices. Her work often blurs the boundaries between truth and fiction, creating personal and social cartographies that examine role, persona, language, group dynamics and interpersonal relationships. Angelico’s theatrically presented works explore humanity’s inherently performative nature. Her practice often reveals a dual preoccupation with annihilation and salvation, suggesting the clarity these states might potentially provoke, whilst reflecting on the precarious relationships we have with each other and ourselves.

In Her revived self Angelico utilises three archetypal female roles in a psychotherapeutic context in order to explore her own personal problems. These roles are a Minoan snake priestess, a viking wife, and Joan of Arc.

Since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2009 Angelico has exhibited in ARIs, institutional and commercial spaces in Australia and internationally. In 2011 she was selected to participate in ‘The Soiree Retreat’ – a residency at The Banff Centre, Canada, and in 2012 she participated in a residency program in Reykjavik, Iceland. Angelico has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants including an Arts Victoria Cultural Exchange grant and The National Gallery of Victoria Woman’s Association Award. Her work was presented by Kitty Scott in her lecture ‘On Curatorial Intelligence’ for the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto in 2011.
