I am Lodovica Guarnieri, researcher and designer working at the convergence of art, activism and science. My work grapples with technoscience as it relates to environmental and social justice, coloniality and climate change with a specific focus on coastal cities and environments.

Hovering between social fabulation and scientific facts, poetry and activism, my practice uses performance and installation as a participative pedagogical format to interrogate the technical and political production of nature and history as contested sites of power, as well as sites of resistance to dominant narratives. By studying them through a situated, feminist ethnographic and materialist approach, my work attempts to find new material imaginaries for social and ecological justice.  

I am currently research resident at the programme Non-Extractive Architecture at V-A-C Zattere, Venice.
My work has been presented at the Lisbon Architecture Triennial, Bureau Europa, Stroom Den Haag, Screen City Biennial, VIPER Gallery, MAO Ljubljana and Depot Basel among other institutions.
In the past, I worked as research assistant of Lorenzo Pezzani on the project Hostile Environment(s), as curatorial research assistant for Manifesta 12 The Planetary Garden and as researcher and assistant curator for the exhibition The Way Beyond Art at Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven.

I hold an MA - with distinction, in Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London, an MDes in Social Design from Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and a BA cum laude from Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan, Italy.
