Polly Palmerini (b.1995, Italy) is an artist, educator and curator based in Manchester UK.  Currently teaching on MA Media and BA Photography at Manchester School of Art (MMU) and working as a Ourtreach Tutor for National Saturday Club in Art and Design and other youth engagement projects. 

She is also co-running
Museum of Half Truths with Rachael Burns.


Her art practice concentrates on materiality, malleability and the performative quality of everyday objects, with an interest in objects found in her surroundings. She has been exploring the never settling relationship in photography between what we see and what we know, by playing with ideas of illusion and myth.
