Isabella Pitisci was an artist with a unique sensibility and a graduate of the BA Photography course at Camberwell College of Arts, who sadly passed away in 2013.  Organised with the assistance of her family, friends and colleagues, Camberwell Space Projects hosts an exhibition that celebrates her work.

Informed by her interest in writing, performance, video and photography, Isabella developed a practice at Camberwell that was experimental and perceptive, and that touched upon very personal themes.  She became increasingly interested in working with found archive material – from photographic slides discarded in skips by the side of the road to developing projects in conjunction with human rights organisations using photographic portraits. Her interest in bridging the gap between personal and broader social and political concerns continued to emerge in subsequent work after college as she made her way as a teacher and artist, participating in various commissions and residencies. This exhibition of work focuses on the extensive body of work she made as an undergraduate at Camberwell.

As part of the exhibition current photography students at Camberwell have responded to Isabella’s generous gift of over 200 books for the college of library by making new work that includes written texts, performances and photographic pieces.
