Inspired by the mythical tale I adopt a contemporary approach to focus on the social & cultural element of a territory, starting from a map on which a city is outlined and thus analysing the networks. The house, the piazza, the street and the surroundings become contemporary frame and drawings.
I worked particularly around the issue of women and of gaze, for instance in the Burka installation, or taking inspiration from ancient feminine myths, in the following works: Pandora, Puttane, Penelope, Proserpina.
I’m currently working on the theme of gaze through an analysis of no man’s land and abandoned places.
The tools I use are maps, video, interviews, embroideries, photography, performances and workshops, while structuring a journey across the urban and natural territory, a geography that develops through plots and powers.
These projects have been showcased in late exhibitions: “Paesaggio”, 2013, about the Venetian territory at the Cantiere OAM, Teatro Marinoni in Venice Lido; “Proserpina”, 2013, about the Sicilian territory at the Piccolo Hansaldo, Officine Creative in Milan; “El album japonès”, 2014, with the work “Forbidden garden” for the Galleria Obra Gráfica, Yolanda Ochando, Màlaga, Spain; “Moving Heritage”, 2014, artistic performance site specific, Palazzo della Ragione of Padova, opening the Unesco World Tourism Expo 2014.
These issues have been also dealt with with a scientific perspective at the Conference “Looks and landscapes: mental & physical maps”, 2013, Sevilla, Spain, on the occasion of the International Seminar of Inclusive Art, where three projects made together with Giulio Pasolini in Rio de Janeiro-Venice-Padua, focusing on the gaze and the human eye. The gaze, object of an artistic analysis, is the starting point of “our” landscape, that very landscape representing us and educating us.
