Giulia PARLATO (b.1993) is an Italian artist mainly based in London. Her practice revolves around myths, history and object-hood, dealing with themes such as melancholia, and disappearance. She is interested in how the meaning of symbols change over centuries to adjust to contemporary society. With an attentive look at the idea of failed encounters, her practice undertakes an exhaustive journey into this notion in trying to understand which objects and spaces men usually use to search something that in reality can never be found. This melancholic and frustrating state, cased by men impossibility to know the past, is what fascinates her, and it constitutes the foundation of her work.
