Mameli artistic career started in 2007 when her work was exhibited at the prestigious art show Paris Photo with the Bruce Silverstein gallery. Her most recent series titled "Grand Central Station, Continued' - inspired by the celebrations for the Grand Central Station Centennial in New York, made their debut, in June 2013, at Art Basel, Switzerland, considered the most prestigious art show in the world.
The figures capture by Mameli's camera «… are literally spotlighted, a term derived from theater, by light steaming in from a window, while the busy concourse around them has vanished into blackness. Mameli is in love with and inspired by New York City; she regards Grand Central Station, that major site of entrance and exit from the city and a place familiar from many movies, as a kind of collecting point for the magnetism, energy and vitality of the metropolis.»
The well respected photography art critic Vicki Goldberg writes about Mameli's work: «Indoors, in Grand Central Station, the unavoidable and riveting attraction of a single light in darkness emphasizes the significance of tiny, colorful figures standing alone, the omnipresent crowds having simply been blotted out.»
At GovanorArt, Mameli will show a new piece inspired by the theme of "Saint George and the Dragon" which since the medieval times has become a strong symbol for the battle of Good against Evil. The mind behind the exhibition is the founder of GovanorArt, Gian Carlo Marchisio, esteemed artist, painter and sculptor, who will contribute to the group show with one of his pieces. A catalog is produced in conjunction with the exhibition, curated by the art critic Alessandro Ponzeletti. The exhibition will open on April 12th, 2014 at 6:00 pm at GovanorArt, Via G. Budroni 9, Bonnannaro, approximately twenty km from Sassari (Italy).
