Alessandra Eramo is an artist and composer who works primarily with voice and noise. She creates performance pieces, text-sound compositions, videos, drawings and site-specific installations, exploring the tension between vocality and writing, the phonetics, the physicality and trance-like states in singing. Her artistic production focuses on the juxtaposition between pleasure and disturbance, fragility and power, memory and the present, public space and intimacy.
She has performed and exhibited widely at festivals, museums, galleries, theatres and independent art spaces, among others: FLUSSI Media Arts Festival Avellino 2015, PACT Zollverein Essen, Museum FLUXUS+ Potsdam, Liverpool Biennial 2012, Roulette New York, Galerie Haus am Lützowplatz Berlin. By invitation of the Italian Culture Institute Stuttgart, she participated in the "Italian Pavilion in the World" of the 54th Venice Biennale with her audiovisual work Poetophonie.
The residency of Alessandra Eramo is kindly supported by the Italian Culture Institute in Stockholm.
