Eleonora Pasti – Breathe

Opening: Saturday 9th March 2024
Exhibition Dates: 6 Mar - 28 Mar


130 Regent Street Redfern


A professional artist in Luxembourg and France for 15 years, Eleonora Pasti arrived in
Australia in November 2021. Her art is constantly evolving as it reflects and evokes
themes of society and community with notions that make it personal and autobiographical.
She defines herself as an artivist; an artist who is deeply engaged in feminist and the fight
for gender equality.
Art for Eleonora is always political.
Her studies at the University of Bologna, under the guidance of Umberto Eco (professor of
semiotics), led her to search for connections between different aspects of culture.
Language, religion, architecture and fashion are just a few examples where the semiotics
of art can find new resonance and new ways of regarding and interpreting reality.
