Le Dame Art Gallery are delighted to present “Collection of a Magpie”, the first UK Solo Show of Italian artist Alice Padovani.


Born in 1979 in Italy, where she still lives and works, she graduated at the University of Bologna with a Master’s Degree in Philosophy in 2007 and a Master’s Degree in Visual Arts in 2015. Preferring drawings, installations and performances, as a visual artist she has won several awards such as the Art Rounds - Celeste Prize in 2016, the Who art you? Press Award Winner – 4th Edition (Italy) in 2015 and the Young Art Pitching Prize, Art&Museum International Exhibition Xchange in Turin (Italy) in 2014.

In 2017 she was selected for the Artrooms Fair in London and due to the incredible success with Private and Public Collections, the directors Cristina Cellini Antonini and Chiara Canal invited her to join the Portfolio of Le Dame Art Gallery.

“Alice is the kind of artist every gallery would like to work with. Her artistic research generates impactful works worth a Museum exhibition, such as those from the “Collection of a Magpie” series. Scarab beetles and little tiny objects, or fragments are assembled together to create precious nests made in gold, or emerald or simply black and white. The outcome is just exquisite, a must-have collection”, say Cristina and Chiara.

Alice’s constant research and unconventional background (as a former theatre actor and director) lead her to explore different media and techniques. Obsessed with death and time, art is a personal diary to overcome loss and grief.
