Interview: Alice Toniolo

Luca Curci talks with artist Alice Toniolo during BODIES+CITIES SKIN exhibition in Venice on May 2016. Alice Toniolo started an artistic path that approaches the art of transavantgardism with paint, and then became engaged in video art projects and performances. Through these forms of art, Alice Toniolo investigates more sensitive dynamics and spiritual dimension using pictures, sounds, melodies, poetry by inviting the viewer to interpret experiential and existantial concepts in a philosophical key.

Luca Curci – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or is it a part of preexisting works?

Alice Toniolo – Pages is part of a preexisting project, a sort of investigation of memory and thoughts’ evolution that I collected between Italy and England in a philosophical key.

L.C. – Please tell us what are you working at right now…

A.T. – Probably my next project will be devoted to the meaning of relationship, family, and all of the emotions linked to these words.

L.C. – What is art for you?

A.T. – For me, art is sensitivity that is visible to the eyes, a new dimension of reality. Art  gives people the possibility to understand deep meening of existance, emotions that sometimes are difficult to descibe. Sometimes the artist can address viewer towards the true meaning of the work even if everyone has a different sensitivity. For this reason, art is free from conditioning.

L.C. – What role does the art have in society? And the artist?

A.T. – Art should be beauty, the expression of beauty. The artist should be able to translate it in an understandable language, to educate in a good way.

L.C. – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?

A.T. – I think that sometimes people are not able to transmit emotions in order to evolve spiritually, and I stated from here..investigating feelings, emotions,thoughts’ evolution. I believe that the “individual needs this kind of art to be able to analyze better himself,” cause we do not put in discussion the right importance of emotion in this contemporary life.

L.C. – What is your creative process like?

A.T. – As a continuous search of the senses, I started using colours on a canvas and I developed my projet in videoart and performance. There are no rules in my art, the expression captures the frame that I decided to share with people.

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Platform?

A.T. – It’s LIQUID platform it’s a great idea to share different kind of art with international artist around the world that want to be part of a well-distributed organization that allows artists to make themselves known internationally, sharing different artworks in the world.

L.C. – What do you think about our organization of the event?

A.T. – I received excellent support by mail for boh my performances in UK and in Venice, especially for the final details!
