Born 1982 in Parma/Italy.
Cinzia Delnevo completed her Masters Degree in Planning and Production of Visual Arts at IUAV University in Venice in 2011, after finishing her Fine Arts program at the Academy of Bologna in 2007. Between 2005 and 2006 she attended ‘Art Plastique’ classes at the University of Paris VIII - University of Vincennes in Paris.
She works as an independent artist developing projects in photography, video, installation and mostly in performance and drawing. From 2013 she started a daily practice exploring the act of drawing as a liberating sequence of semi-mechanical actions without a predetermined design.
In 2016-2017 she activated drawing interventions in public and/or neglected spaces, like among others Serenova in Apulia, a series of site specific interferences (slightly perceptible generative drawings) in an abandoned rural settlement, a failed emancipatory project from the 50s aiming to implement the family scale rural production in the region. These buildings are nowadays ruins colonized by bushes, insects, birds, and grown wild plants of figs.
Her drawings were recently exhibited in Monaco at L’Entrepot Gallery, Principality of Monaco, MC; and during I dreamt of a Posidonia prairie, solo show and three weeks collective drawing performance at Fruit Gallery, Bologna, Italy.
Her work was also previously exhibited during Jerwood Drawing Prize 2015, Jerwood Space, London and in 2016 during Draw to Perform 3, International Symposium for Drawing Performance at Crows Nest Gallery, London, UK.
