“With uninhibited creativity, Agostini produces compelling scenes of remarkable simplicity. Her world is charged with suggestive intimate scenes of friends and telling arrangements of the paranormal. Agostini’s style runs the gamut: from soft-focus dreamy look to hard edge landscape and architecture, from miniature to monumental, from posed to the candor of street photography, to a reflection on the social constructs of relationships. It makes you thirsty for more.” (Bruce Checefsky)
(Padova, IT, 1983)
Her work focuses on the woman’s body and its ability to express freedom, far removed from social boundaries. This quest, broken down and then reassembled, is pursued, through her work, by exploring the many ways in which human existence inhabits spaces: spontaneously, romantically, as the ever present link between the dream and the waking world. The artist’s work was featured in New York, Milan, Paris, Naples. Her shots were published in issues of i-D, Il Sole 24 Ore, Rolling Stone, Internazionale. Since 2016 she is featured at the Heillandi Gallery, Lugano. In 2021 she published her first book with NFC edizioni.
