Sabrina Torelli (Reggio Emilia, 1966). In 1996 she received her Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in Bologna. In 1999, she was seleceted for the International Studio Program - PS1- New York. In 2001 she was finalist for the Premio Querini - Furla 2001 Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice, and in the same year she won the award Open Space by the Gallery of Modern Art of Bologna. Her work investigates the different aspects of the possible sensorial perceptions, in the everyday dimension of the human being, in those of disorder and disease and in the processes of communication of nature’s systems, through the use of a wide variety of mediums and expressive tools. In recent years, the philosophical and spiritual component is an "upward momentum" in a personal journey of adherence to beliefs in which coexist in a harmonious way the material and immaterial world, the earthly and the cosmic dimension. Since 2005 she works on alternative therapies and techniques, taking an interest in practices and tools. Among the recent solo and group exhibitions, we remember: 2013 Self-portraits.
