Egle Oddo b. 1975 in Italy. Her work focuses on linear and non-linear narrative as an art form. Interested in operational realism, meant as the presentation of the functional sphere in an aesthetic arrangement and its inter-relations, she combines photography, moving image, installation, sculpture, environmental art, and experimental live art. In her pieces industrial production morphs towards delicate handcraft, life forms appear and emerge out of sculptures and objects, film photography appropriate digital images, selected trash mix with fashion, precious edible minerals and ancestral recipes are served as part of ritual meals.

Her work is present at international biennials, Museums and relevant institutions, as well as cutting edge and independent alternative spaces and events, to mention few: MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art, Manifesta12, Zilberman gallery, 3me Biennale Internationale de Casablanca, Finnish National Museum of Photography, 54th Venice Biennale, Triennial Agrikultura, MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art, gallery Bikini Wax, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Club Solo, Kunsthalle Exnergasse Vienna, Transmediale, Pace Digital gallery New York, Loop Barcelona, La Sala Naranja, Hermitage Museum, and other venues. Her research is awarded and supported by private and public foundations internationally.

She founded Namastic Art Collective with Toni Ledentsa and Virva Sointu. At present she is member of associations Pixelache, Catalysti, and Muu, and board member of Myymälä2 contemporary art gallery. She lives and works in Helsinki.
