Grazia Toderi likens her video projections to frescoes of light. She draws heavily on the experience from distant views of cities glowing at night to the zero-gravity ballets of space programs. Manipulating her imagery with computer animation, Toderi combines satellite and military footage with her own films and photographs in an effort to visualize the infinite.
The artist first gained critical attention in part as a result of her participation in Aperto ´93 at the 45th Venice Biennale. In recent years Toderi has participated in numerous important group exhibitions, in addition to having solo exhibitions in museums and exhibition spaces such as Frac Bourgogne in Dijon, Casino Luxembourg in Luxembourg, and Castello di Rivoli Museo d´Arte Contemporanea. In 2009 she has been invited to participate in the exhibition Fare Mondi / Making Worlds...She is now working on a challenging project that will be shown on the occasion of her solo exhibition at the Museo Serralves in Porto, in 2010.
