Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of RITUALS – ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL?
Christine Heitler – The painting is called Oyster. In my mind everything on earth comes from water and is connected to the sea. All life goes back to the water, and I expressed these thoughts by paianting a small animal which lives in the sea.

L. C. – What do you think about the concept of this event? In which way did inspire you?
C. H. – I think the exhibition in three parts gives space to the artists to show their work to a great audience. The main reason for me was the location in Venice. The atmosphere of Venice and the vicinity to the lagune is breathtaking.
