Maria Teresa Ortoleva

The Slade School (MA Fine Art )

Maria Teresa Ortoleva (b. 1990 in Milan) is an Italian artist based in London. After a background in the Humanities, she graduated with Honours from Brera Academy of Fine Arts, with a thesis on ‘The Places of Images: the Phenomenon of Imagination Between Fantasy and Knowledge.’ The research she started to develop there received twice the Incentive Award for the Art Practice from Brera Academy and the support of a Leverhulme Scholarship in 2013 for a Summer residency programme at Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire. In 2014 she was awarded a Distinction on completing her MA in Fine Arts at The Slade School of Fine Art (UCL).

Ortoleva's research-based practice investigates imaginative processes and their impact on the experience of objects and places, how it influences our knowledge of them, the way we relate to them and the ability to establish bonds of familiarity. Her installation work, using site specific locations, found objects and digital projections, engages with the perceptive and menmonic experience of the viewer, triggering his imaginative faculties to activate. The editions of prints Ortoleva produces offer a durable trace of these experiences. Drawing as an analytical language for grasping and unravelling imaginative thinking is another key tool to her practice.
