Giuditta Vendrame interweaves art and design through legal infrastructures with works that focus on personhood, space, and mobility. She combines research on the circulation of bodies in public space with performative moments and symbolic gestures. Through investigations into citizenship and its paradoxes, she finds ways to open political spaces through playful and poetic interventions. For several years, Vendrame has been looking at interconnected bodies of water to challenge modern conceptions of nationhood, territory, and borderlands. Her work has been exhibited and presented at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Walker Art Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, RMIT Gallery Melbourne, OCAT Shenzhen, among others.
