Pamela Breda

Pamela Breda’s artistic practice explores image archives from an anthropological point of view, stressing the links between pictures’ narrative potential and their contexts of receptions.

Born in 1982, in Vittorio Veneto (Italy). Lives and works in London. She received an MA in Visual Arts from IUAV University, Italy. Pamela Breda’s work has been exhibited in international venues in Venice, London, Santander, Salzburg, Trondheim, and in institutions such as Karlsruhe Kunsthalle, Fondation Francois Schneider, La Casa Encendida, Fondation Botin, Fondation Bevilacqua La Masa and Venice Architecture Biennal, Moscow Biennale of Young Art.

Her main area of research is focused on cultural visual tropes and traditions, on the contingency of the artistic process and on its multiple outcomes. She analyzes western imaginaries connected with culturally and socially-engaged contexts of production and reception. Starting from the analysis on the relationship between powers and knowledge and between artwork and the narrative fiction implied in it, she researches the visual-cognitive values ascribed to the contemporary image exploited as a narration.
