Currently on an artistic residency at the Istituto Svizzero di Roma, Miriam Laura Leonardi’s presentation at Fri Art is her first monographic exhibition in an institution. In the image of her neon work yeah, an ambigram whose graphic representation allows the word to be read in both directions, the artist has constructed this show around the ambiguity of meaning and perception.
Born in 1985, Lörrach, Germany, Miriam Laura Leonardi lives and works in Zürich. She has a degree from Les Gobelins photography school in Paris and the ZHDK in Zurich. She held an individual exhibition at the Maria Bernheim Gallery in Zurich in 2016. Her work has been shown at Marbriers 4, Geneva; Swiss Art Awards, Basel; Kunsthaus Glarus, Glarus; Paris International, Paris; Tiblisi 16, Tiblisi; Swiss Institute, New York.
