Mary Pedicini is an American sculptor based in London. The core of her work is with storytelling, and her practice is research-led. She employs scale shifts and deep-time thinking to question the implicit and explicit stories we tell about ourselves and our environment, through present past and future, often disrupting them by centering new perspectives. How does the Greek myth of Sisyphus change if erosion is introduced? What lessons can we learn from the practices of non-human species?
Pedicini received her BA in 2019 from Dartmouth College and her MA in 2022 from the Royal College of Art. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions at Abigail Ogilvy in Boston, US, Meisyakan Gallery, Ningbo, China, and Standpoint Gallery and the Freud Museum in London, UK, among others. She has had solo shows in the Barrows Rotunda at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hanover, US, and Shelter in Place Gallery in Boston, US. In 2020 she was the recipient of Dartmouth’s James B. Reynolds Scholarship for Foreign Study.
