Emidio Battipaglia is an Italian-born visual artist currently based in Lausanne, Switzerland where he is attending the Master’s Photography programme at ÉCAL.
His work engages with issues of migration, deeply investigating the social terrains where identity, space, social hierarchies and memory are constantly being re-constructed and negotiated exploring how the ‘alien’ is constructed in society.
Emidio's artistic practice spans across sculpture, video art, performance and photography.
Emidio’s work has been exhibited and published internationally.
