Biography PDF


Zoè Gruni was born in 1982 in Pistoia, Italy.
Actually she lives and works between Florence, Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles. Her work has
been shown in many video-art festivals and exhibitions in Italy, France, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Germany, Brazil and United States.

After obtaining her diplome in 2000 at Istituto d’arte, she was awarded from the Accademia di Belle Arti of Florence where she attended Andrea Granchi’s School of Painting in 2006. Here she won the Studenti Eccellenti Prize while showing her work at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno in Florence. During her thesis research about Carol Rama’s work, she moved to Turin where she met the artist. In the same year she opened the Contemporary Art Space Studi8 in Pistoia in partnership with Cristiano Coppi and other artists. Through the Centro di Documentazione per l’Arte Contemporanea of Pistoia she showed her work in many exhibitions, events and open studios in her hometown and she presented her first solo exhibition Balì Balle Baloo at Palazzo Balì, curated by Silvia Lucchesi. In 2010 her work was bought by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Pistoia and Pescia and presented at Palazzo Fabroni at the exhibition 1910 - 2010: un secolo d’arte a Pistoia (1910 – 2010: a century of art in Pistoia), curated by Lara Vinca Masini.
She worked in some theatrical shows and her sculptures became the dramaturgic element of Conversazione con la Pietra (Conversation with the Stone), a show created in partnership with the actor and musician Piero Corso and the actress Tania Garribba (Festival Via Cava, Roselle 2007). In 2007 she started to collaborate with Galleria Il Ponte in Florence, which represents her in Italy, showing her work at many international contemporary art fairs. Between 2008 e 2010, with the support of curator Enrico Pedrini, she presented her solo exhibition Metato at Galleria Il Ponte in Florence; Galerie Depardieu in Nice, France, Entropyart/In /Progress in Naples and the Teatro Sala Umberto in Rome.
In Florence she worked with C.C.C.S. Strozzina in the Open Studios Project in 2009, which was part of the Toscana In Contemporanea project, in collaboration with the Centro d’ Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci of Prato. During the project, she gave some lectures for the American universities in Florence.
In 2010 she moved to California and started to collaborate with the Fu Xin Gallery in Shanghai-Las Vegas which showed her work in some international contemporary art fairs in Los Angeles and Miami. Between 2010 and 2012, Zoè Gruni developed the project “Urban Jackalope” that involved musicians and young writers through the Art Space F_AIR of Florence and FUA (Florence University of America) curated by Lucia Giardino.
In 2011 she became an artist-member of the O.C.C.C.A. (Orange County Center for Contemporary Art) in Santa Ana where she took part in the Ufora international project of relational art. In 2012 she was Artist in Residency at Raid Projects in Los Angeles where she developed the project “Metropolitan Legend” which she showed at LA Artcore. During the two years in the U.S., she showed her work in many group exhibitions in California (Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Torrance, Irvine, Santa Ana) and her work was selected for several biennials (Biennale Giovani Monza, Italy, curated by Franziska Nori; 54° Esposizione d’arte Internazionale la Biennale di Venezia – Lo stato dell’arte, Padiglione Accademie at the Venice Biennial; Mexicali Biennial at Vincent Price Museum in Los Angeles; Sur Biennial at the TAM Museum in Torrance). In 2012 Zoè Gruni moved to Brazil. While living in Rio de Janeiro she started to study Brazilian culture and the theme of nomadism. Contemporaneously she developed the video “La Mérica” in collaboration with the video-maker Lyana Peck, showing it at the Italian Embassy in Brasilia.
In 2013 she was Artist in Residency at FAAP in San Paolo where she developed the project “Boitatà” and made some lectures at the University . The multimedia project included a sound performance in collaboration with a group of experimental musicians, Tek Tek Gerbelier & Spitz, and Eurythmic dancer Marcia Ferreira; they performed at Kunsthalle in San Paolo. After the residency, the Galeria Progetti invited Zoè Gruni to show the project in a solo exhibition in Rio de Janeiro. During the exhibition she started to collaborate with the artists Bernardo Damasceno and Xico Chaves, devising the event Palavrorio, an open discussion between anthropology and politics. In 2014 the Galleria Il Ponte has invited her to present her second solo exhibition “Le Americhe” and will make a book “Zoè Gruni 2004-2014 Mitopoiesi”, on the last ten years of her works with texts by Franziska Nori and Xico Chaves.
Between 2014 and 2015 her work was select for the Premio Artistico Fondazione VAF, XI edizione – Posizioni attuali dell’arte italiana, showing her work in Italy and Germany at Palazzo della Penna, Perugia; Schauwerk, Sindelfingen (Stuttgart) and Stadtgalerie, Kiel. In 2016 she criated the intercontinental sculpture “Boto Rosa” showing it in Brazil and Italy at the same time, in the exhibitions Intervenções Bradesco Artrio at Museu da Republica, Rio de Janeiro; La Torre di Babele at Fabbriche Ex Lucchesi, Prato. Curated by Pietro Gaglianò, in collaboration with the Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci. In 2017 Zoè made “Carmen pra rua” a revival of the performance “Carmen” (2007) at Centro Cultural Justiça Federal of Rio de Janeiro with Galeria Transparente. At the same time she started to teach at EAV Parque Lage. Her project “Segunda Pele: Híbrido, memória, reciclagem” (Second skin: Hybrid, memory, recicle) is a course about performance and sculpture.
