Luca Curci – Can you talk about your personal experience in Venice? What did you think about the whole organization of the event, the artists’ selection, the communication management and opening nights?

Gudrun Latten – I think it’s great! Especially I’m delighted about the publicity on Facebook. It would be great if you could place some signposts in Venice which giude to the venues because I go wrong everytime in Venice. I’d like to compliment the communication management especially. You have to communicate with so many artists and yet I feel attended to personally.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

G. L. – About 1,5 years ago I’ve begun to work on the series “Narziss – form follows function”. It is a research about me and myself as well as about the self-portrait as a genre, the picture and all its qualities. My pictures seemed to fit perfectly to the topic of the festival.

L. C. – What is art for you?

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

G. L. – I’ve experienced International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID this summer. It has been and it is still a great chance for me. It is getting better every time I hear from them: Now they are going to publish a catalogue! I’m lucky to be part of this.
