Stefano Conti (b.1994, Italy) is an artist based between Italy and Sweden. He holds an MFA in Photography from Valand Academy, Gothenburg and a BFA in Photography from LABA (Libera Accademia di Belle Arti), Brescia, Italy.
Through a cross-disciplinary approach that intertwines photography, sculpture, and collage, his practice explores topics related to historiography and humans’ relationship to objects, resulting in both installations and publications.
Recent exhibitions include Northern Photographic Center (Oulu, Finland, 2022), Athens Photo Festival (Photobook Exhibition at Benaki Museum, 2022), Museum of World Cultures (Genova, 2021), Konstepidemin (Göteborg, 2021), Tête Gallery (Berlin, 2021), Condominio (Milan, 2021), Premio Nocivelli (Verolanuova, 2020), Landskrona Foto Festival (Landskrona, 2020).
In addition to his solo practice, he collaborates with Swedish artist Emma Sandström as the duo Emma & Conti. Together, they work with sculptural and photographic installations inspired by cultural heritage and archives.
