Marinella Senatore was born in Italy in 1977 and currently lives in Paris. Her artistic practice merges forms of protest and learning theatre, music and film. She takes inspiration from public ceremonies, civil rituals as well as mass events, while reflecting on the political dimension of collective formations and how they generate a potential for social change. In 2013 she founded The School of Narrative Dance. Next to her performative practice she explores urban issues and social topics such as emancipation and equality through paintings, collages, installations, video, photography and sound. Marinella Senatore's record of solo shows includes projects at the Queens Museum, New York (2017), State of Concept, Athens (2017), Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, Paris (2016), Mot International, London (2014), and Castello di Rivoli (2013). She participated in group exhibitions such as the 13e Biennale de Lyon (2015), 5th Thessaloniki Biennial of Contemporary Art (2015) and MAXXI Museum, Rome (2014).
