Ilaria Ferretti (born in Fabriano, 1980) is an Italian conceptual artist-photographer based in Le Marche. After 20 years of living in Turin she mainly currently lives in her original territory, The Marches region in central Italy.

Through the manipulation of color and expert use of developing techniques, both analogical and digital, she creates visionary works that melt mystic thoughts with universal beauty. Natural and anthropized landscapes, plants, animals, human traces, architecture, and rarely human beings are all instruments she uses to talk about universal themes like life and death and to explore the meaning of existence. Curator and architect Pippo Ciorra defined her work as being “Punk-Romantik”.

She graduated in Photography at the European Institute of Design (IED) of Turin, in 2002.

In 2011, she co-founded the PHOS Centre for Photography and Visual Arts in Turin together with
artists-photographers and philanthropists. From 2005 to 2016, she had been a lecturer of Dark
Room Techniques and Fine Art Printing at the Department of Photography of the European
Institute of Design (IED) of Turin. In 2019, she became visiting professor at the School of
Architecture and Design of the University of Camerino, where she led a documentary project about
social housing at the Hotel House of Porto Recanati (Ancona, Italy).

Since 2019, she collaborates with Ares Contemporary Gallery of Lugano (Switzerland). From 2014
to 2018, she had been represented by MUST GALLERY (Switzerland).

In 2020, she has been invited to take part to the "Italia in-attesa" project, promoted by the Italian
Ministry of Culture, together with some of the most important artists-photographers in Italy. The
"Italia in-attesa. Twelve photographic tales" project has been recently exhibited in Italy to
Fondazione Palazzo Magnani of Reggio Emilia (2022), Villa Pignatelli Museum of Naples (2022)
and Palazzo Barberini of Rome (2021).

Her latest solo exhibitions have been presented at the Leica Store of Turin (2022), MUST
GALLERY of Lugano (Switzerland, 2016) and Lavi! City of Bologna. In 2015, her series Bestiario
has been exhibited at the Arte Fiera of Bologna. This series was further published in the book
“ANIMAE. The invisible sources of the artworks...” (Vernon Press, USA) by Emma Coccioli,
together with a detailed interview to the artist.
