Joana Astolfi’s work focuses on the transformation of forgotten and obsolete objects into ‘objets d’art’ through conceptual twists, creating unique pieces. Astolfi is a voyeur and a collector and is particularly interested in the process of resuscitating and transforming found objects, giving them a second chance. Each piece tells a story based on the memories of the objects that she finds. She often plays with the idea of scale and proportion and frequently invites the public to discover her artworks by looking through magnifying lenses or peeping through viewfinders. Astolfi likes to celebrate imperfections and mistakes, often evoking humor in her pieces.
