My name is Elena Lo Presti, my pronouns are she/her, and I am a multidisciplinary artist originally from Roma and now based in London. Prevalently working with ceramics and writing, I am interested in creating an alternative form of visual narration where the personal and the domestic become the main vehicles for sharing.
I have studied at Arts University Bournemouth, Kyoto University of Art and Design and more recently at the Royal College of Art, exhibiting internationally from Kyoto, to Oxford, to the online realm during more recent times.
My most recent group exhibitions are Pending at San Mei Gallery (London), SISSI Club x Everything Forever at SISSI Club (Marseille), Quilting the Commons at AMP Studios (London) and the upcoming Not a Sphere but an irregular shape approximating a biaxial ellipsoid at DOOResidency (Amsterdam).
My written work has been published on New Critique (2021) and The Paper (Edited by Good Press, 2021).
I have had the pleasure to be selected as one of the recipients of the Youth Innovation Fellowship 2021 organized by Business Launchpad.
I’m part of Thiasos, a multidisciplinary performance collective working within intersectional feminism, based internationally.
