About the Artist
Felicity Palma’s work reflects on experiences of place and belonging. She records the body in context with migration, landscape, and memory, and works predominantly in analog film and photography to distort conceptions of time. Her work questions the past and the present, and her collaged layers of time and space weave throughout unspoken narratives in which the artist is aware of her presence in the world and her role as an artist and documentarian.
Born and raised in California to a Sicilian father and first generation Croatian mother, Felicity is currently based in Durham, NC as a candidate for an MFA in Experimental & Documentary Art at Duke University. She is the recipient of multiple awards, grants and fellowships, including the Flaherty Film Fellowship, the Anne Scott Firor Research Award, the Kenan Graduate Arts Fellowship, Duke Bass Connections Fellowship, and the Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship.
