Lodovica Guarnieri is an Italian-born researcher and designer based in London.
Her practice grapples with technoscience as it relates to colonialism, extractivism, and their enduring toxic legacies in the environments. She uses performance and scriptwriting as counter-pedagogical tools to address colonialism’s long-standing impact and uncover new material imaginaries for socio-environmental justice.
Over the years, Lodovica has held curatorial research positions at Van Abbemuseum (NL) and at Manifesta 12 (NL/IT) and collaborated on the projects “Hostile Environment(s)” by Border Forensis and "Non-Extractive Architecture" publication and exhibition. She developed performances, public programmes, and lectures for TBA21, Stroom Den Haag, Lisbon Architecture Triennial, Bureau Europa, Bozar, and The Anthropocene Campus/HKW among others.
Currently, she is part of The Tidal Garden, a research agency based in Venice (IT) that explores the edible potential of salt-tolerant plants as a tool for cultural adaptation to climate change. She holds an MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London.
