Manuela Picallo Gil was born 1985 in Eisenstadt (Burgenland, Austria), lives, studies and works in Vienna.

Artist Statement
I use the field of tension between inclusion and exclusion on a linguistic level in order to question social and own categories through multimedia objects and installations. Thematically, my works predominantly moves in the field of gender/sex diversity, identity and sexuality, which has parallels to the second focus of my work: social marginalization through the media, where by image and language are exploited to exclusion.
