Interview : Amadeus Coletta
Luca Curci
talks with Amadeus Coletta during Venice International Art Fair 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Based in São Paulo city, Brazil. Graduated in visual arts and post graduated in theater. Creates works of performance and video art made available in social media using the pseudonym Amadeus Colletta, since mid-2000.
All artistic work originates from everyday thoughts and feelings and all works is done in the delimited space of an apartment. They are made in an experimental way and although titled, they allow the subjectivity of the interpretation to the observer.

Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Amadeus Coletta –
In general, the work subject comes from feelings and very predominant thoughts. There is not a single subject worked on, they just arise in the course of my own experience and that I believe are very human too.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
AC –
I believe that my practice at the moment is still in movement, I continue to experiment with different communication paths, which are transparent and which allow the subjectivity of understanding. But this practice started with different experimentations on videos, studying materials that could create a bridge within my expression. In fact, I try not to get stagnated in a single practice, it would be impoverishing my process, no doubt.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
AC –
The performance art and video started during the pandemic, before my work was all in photography and painting. But I don’t have attached myself to a style, I have only tried to communicate in the most truthful way possible.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it like your medium of expression?
AC –
Yes, each work of artwork means a lot to me personally, it always comes from present feelings and thoughts. I believe that more than ever we live in a time where rationality prevails over humanity, it may seems as shameful to show human aspects of feeling so it is not just a way of expressing myself, but it is the way I found to create an external dialogue with the one who accompanies my work , to create a human-to-human communication, I hope I can do it.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
AC
– Of course it depends on the work done, some works result in euphoria, but in general I feel that I purged something that I could not put into words or digest in any way.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
AC –
It is great to participate in a festival format where there are so many artists from different places with different forms of expression. I try not to think about my exposed work so that it doesn’t interfere with my creative process, but It sure is a motivation.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
AC –
The work was already done, I would hardly do a production directed to an exhibition, it really is not my way of directing my work.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
AC –
The organizer did a great job.
