Graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, Germany, Daniela Baldelli has been based in Paris since receiving a residency grant at the Cité internationale des arts in 2010.
The question of artistic production and its medium has always been central to the artist's installations.
Today her practice is clearly divided into two different axes "Non-Work" and "Work", two definitions that distinguish two main aspects of his artistic research, but can also be interpreted as the central and peripheral parts of the same body.
These two definitions are closely linked to the very notion of work and to the French language.
Marked by a physical presence and a manual practice, these two axes centred on the notion of order, transition and space are however strongly influenced by language and also by the introduction and development of new technologies in our daily life.
In 2015, in collaboration with Markus Lichti, Daniela Baldelli created an exhibition space called Rinomina (Italian for rename, to name again). We founded this space with the aim of giving shape to our own artistic practice here in Paris, but also to allow other artists to design exhibitions here. Rinomina sees its programming and curatorial practice as strongly rooted in our own activity as artists.
Rinomina tries to act coherently in a flexible, conceptual and collaborative process, aiming to maintain a divergent perspective on what an exhibition space can be. Since its creation, this space has exhibited numerous artists from the French and international contemporary scene, in a heterogeneous and dynamic programme, such as: Felicia Atkinson, Louise Drulhe,
Raphaël Bastide, Cécile Bicler, Eric Giraudet de Boudemange, Vanessa Dziuba, Martin Chramosta, Zoe Claire Miller, Philippe Hernandez, Dominique Koch, Ambra Pittoni, Thomas Geiger, Claudia de La Torre, Ana Navas, and many others.
