Beatrice Magalotti’s 2016 piece called “Wounded Dragon” shows the direction she was heading when she accepted an artist in residency program in Iceland. Magalotti used her Icelandic residency to thoroughly explore a growing fascination with Germanic and Icelandic pre-christian and pagan folklore.
A further residence program at the Hollufgård artist residency in Denmark solidified her research.
These enriching and challenging residencies continue to inform her work.
Magalotti completed her BA, sculpture at Prahran in 1985 and Curatorial Postgrad at Melbourne University in 1992.
