Paola Pivi (born 1971 in Milan, Italy) is an Italian multimedia artist[2] who generally lives and works in Anchorage, Alaska but from 2013 until 2016 was based in Delhi, India – together with her husband, the composer Karma Lama / Culture Brothers – because of the adoption of their adoptive son. In her work, she uses a wide range of artistic techniques, including photography, sculpture and performance.[3] Some of her works contain performance elements, at times involving live animals and people.[4][5][6][7] In 1999, she received the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Biennale.[8]
