Interview: Andrea Riba

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Andrea Riba during LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH 2017 in Venice.

Andrea Riba is a Chilean born, Mexican-American multi-media artist. Through claymation animation and stop-motion techniques, she approaches the medium as a means to create a world of one’s own – in which its logic functions by the agency of the artist itself. By doing so, she creates alternative realities that orbit themes of sustainability, environmental concerns, and inter-galactic colonization. Likewise, she utilizes photography – photojournalism and curated photoshoots, as a means to twist reality, as well as illuminate untold stories that entertain the concepts in media, data, and technology in parallel to themes of identity, heritage, and culture.

Luca Curci talks with artist Amalia Gil-Merino during RITUALS of ANIMA MUNDI festival in Venice 2017.

Born in Spain, Amalia Gil-Merino studied in Paris and Berlin, where she graduated from the University of Fine Arts and FU in 2008 and in Salzburg Academy of Fine Arts with Norbert Bisky and Ai Weiwei. The parallelism between ancient cultures, forgotten myths and our multicultural contemporary society in her work comes from her double M.A. in Art and Archaeology of the Ancient Near East.This archaeological background is the essence of her art, which lays on the use of pigments and semi-precious minerals as well as the (ánthropos), “human”, and (morphe), “shape”.

Interview: Allanrey ‘Migz’ Salazar & Joe Datuin

 

Luca Curci talks with the artists Allanrey ‘Migz’ Salazar & Joe Datuin during RITUALS of ANIMA MUNDI festival 2017 in VENICE.

Allanrey ‘Migz’ Salazar is a Filipino contemporary artist. His work links hard and soft, clean and dirty…it captures the plight of the individual-struggle, faith, ecstasy and the frailty of humankind. There’s nothing about the images of his works that is harmoniously beautiful by any conventional standards. Salazar wanted the viewer to stock with the image; resonant image that will not deliver its real physical meaning, it is against narrative and probably against interpretations; it’s pure allegory and metaphor.

Interview: One Life Remains

 

Luca Curci talks with One Life Remains, the winner of Performing Art category of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

Considering video game as a major medium, the Paris based collective One Life Remains works towards exploring its properties since 2010. This approach influenced by radical design as well as hardcore gaming and philosophy results in a series of objects that pushes the boundaries of the medium. These creations can take several forms (ephemeral art, monumental installation, concept game) and provide different types of game experience (party play, intellectual play, sensorial play).
