Born in Milan, 1975. Lives and works in Milan, Turin and London.

Reasoning about the work as relation and perhaps as "self-donation" means thinking about it as a place of encounter between the desire of giving and that of receiving. In her performance work Paola Anzichè estabilishes a relationship of hospitality in which what counts is precisely the rapport: the representation of relation and, at the same time, the triggering of the relationship itself.
