Bio

Born in Italy, Matilde Alessandra studied Theater Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice . Working with light for 20 years she has been building a reputation for her dazzling sculptures and installations, and a singular use of fluorescent tubes. Her distinctive trait, essential and immediate, permeates in all her production, spanning from sculpture, industrial design and site-specific installations. She’s also known for her intricate drawings, where the subject of light remains very much central to the work.  She lives and works in New York.
