CAROLINA MAZZOLARI

Carolina Mazzolari (b. 1981 Milan) studied at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano (1999 - 2001) and at London’s Chelsea College of Art (2000 - 03), where she specialised in textiles, dyeing techniques and screen printing. She launched a dual career in Milan, working as an artist in her own studio and as a designer, and was made Head Designer at Verger Milano (2006 - 11).

 

Mazzolari’s time at Verger involved a complete immersion into the Jacquard factories where she worked with industrial machines and learnt the craft that informs her practice today. Her experiences directing professional dancers in fashion shoots as well as her photographic portraits of women were also absorbed into Mazzolari’s multi-disciplinary practice.
