Project collaboration


Francesca Grilli (1978) is a Brussels-based Italian artist working with performance art, sculpture, film, sound installation and esoteric practices. It can be spending time in a dark room together with trained hawks, listening to a concert where musicians play while their instruments’ fiddlesticks are burning, or attending a palm reading session led by children as oracles.

She has participated in numerous international art festivals and museums, including the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Venice Biennale, or the Serpentine Gallery in London. In 2022/4 The National Museum of Norway will host her work Family, where for two years each change of season a multigenerational family constellation will sing songs inspired by the collection of the museum, becoming an artwork themself.
