Martina Menegon

*1988, Italy

Martina Menegon is an artist working predominantly with Interactive and Extended Reality Art.

In her works the artist creates intimate and complex assemblages of physical and virtual elements that explore the contemporary self and its phygital corporeality. She experiments with the uncanny and the grotesque, the self and the body and the dialogue between physical and virtual realities, to create disorienting experiences that become perceivable despite their virtual nature.

Since 2020, Martina Menegon is Vice Director, Head of Extended Reality and Curator at the CIVA Festival for New Media Art as well as Head of XR & 3D and Curator at the platform for immersive experiences “Area for Virtual Art“ on behalf of sound:frame. She is also Senior Artist and Lecturer at the department of Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where she teaches “Digital Design and Virtuality”. 

Martina Menegon’s work has been exhibited internationally both online and AFK.
