Nicole-Antonia Spagnola’s films and installations draw on histories and tropes of subcultural music, literature and film, re-positioning them as contemporary documents and reflecting on what ‘DIY’ culture might look like today.

From 1980s hardcore punk recordings by an Italian anarchist collective to a 19th century ‘Bildungsroman’ (a ‘coming of age’ story) set in New York about upward social mobility, Nicole-Antonia’s work is informed by diverse touchstones. She exposes such source content to various reproductive adaptations, with archival Youtube videos re-filmed on 8mm celluloid before being converted once again to digital files; or candid photographs of city scenes developed in coffee, urine and Vitamin C. Nicole-Antonia’s practice addresses the historical value of images and narratives, their various formats and cycles of use, and how they constitute cultural agents in the present.
