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!

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

Interview: Lidea Hajjar

Interviews | September 19, 2020

Mother of four young men, Lidea M. Hajjar, from the Land of Cedars, a tiny spot on the world map, yet Lebanon is mentioned more than 70 times in the Holy Book. Faith and experiences shaped her multidimensional personality, translated in her ambitions, generosity, thoughtfulness, and passion. Pleasantly calm, she fights for what she desires with the belief that great things don’t come easily. Full- time learner, motivated by her love for everything around her, because she says we are part of the universe and we have plenty of resources. She got her degree in Interior Architecture with honours from the Lebanese American University along with her two elder boys, and another degree in psychology from Lebanese University. She speaks 5 languages and the sixth being a universal one, Art, became her greatest language. She designs her projects, plays guitar, dances, and paints with her body, mind, and soul. And in her Ted talk about Architecture and Tango, Lidea stated that everything is correlated, and every work should be done passionately. For years, her little free time occupation was painting, using different techniques and mediums. But fell lately for the acrylic abstracts, where she finds her hand wandering over the canvas, evoking lots of her emotions, and emanating unlimited expressions, especially in a style of her own she called ‘Limitless Limit’. Her goal is having lovers for her paintings more than clients, she wants her paintings owners to fall for them every day. Self-taught painter, based on the discipline of architecture, the limitations and constraints are her opportunities to design and paint. Eco-friendly artists and engineers are a must for our planet. Rules and norms are her challenge to create. Flexibility is mandatory. Criticism and new approaches are cuddled. She is enrolling in a realism workshop to add skills to her skillset. For Lidea the ''Sky is the Limit''. Through her passion for Life, she enjoys nature, reading, music, dance, yoga, walking her pets, and the most importantly spending time with her beloved ones and eating chocolate. Read more
