Guendalina Cerruti

Guendalina Cerruti (b. 1992, Milan) is an artist based in London. Her installations represent inner monologues, micro-universes loaded with sentiment, sarcasm and attitude, lying between reality, representation and imagination. Subjectivity and popular culture come together to create emotive experiences for visitors entering the scene.

Cerruti’s work consists of installations, objects, sculptures and paintings, which are the result of a daily practice of layering, combining and juxtaposing ideas in an attempt to map out the thinking and emotional processes that help her navigate the experience of her surroundings. Her work often combines elements which are industrially fabricated with handcrafted ones, using a variety of mediums and techniques, drawing from domestic spaces, and interior decorating and furnishing; exploring the personal and the popular through the peripheral and the superfluous. Cerruti is concerned with the practice of presenting and performing the self in everyday life, investigating its tools and principles, and exploring their potentiality for expression and communication. She is fascinated by how humans convey their identity in a visual form, how this relates to branding strategies in contemporary society under the impact of capitalism and social media, and how this is relevant to artistic practice.

Cerruti holds a BA Fine Art NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan (2014) and an MA in Fine Art from Royal College of Art (2017).
