Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of OXYGEN – FRAGMENTED CITIES+IDENTITIES?
Aimée Joaristi – My fragmented mind tied together with physical motion to create the fleeting moment of the passing away of a human being. A fragmented city is like a fragmented corpse.

 

L. C. – What do you think about the concept of this event? In which way did inspire you?
A. J. – By connecting diverse artists and minds in a mutual space full of history and emotion.

A. J. – My artwork is against all focus.

 

L. C. – Did you style change over the years? How?
A. J. – Yes it has changed. I goes from the dark to the light and vice versa. My artwork is a reflection of my soul.
