Interview: Anastasia Notta
Luca Curci talks with Anastasia Notta, during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023, held in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

She was born on March 18 1967 in the village of Ammoudia next to Lake Kerkini in the region of Serres in Greece. She lives and works in Thessaloniki. She learned in her father’s workshop to handle all the tools of a blacksmith and there she had her first inspirations for art watching the burrs under the lathe and creating sculptures with the pieces of iron she found in the dumps. Painting always played a big role in her life since she was fascinated with the magic of the lake landscape, the heavenly birds and animals.

In the last 2 years she studied her second master’s degree on natural and urban landscape, a pioneering master’s degree based in a village of 30 inhabitants in the fishing area of Prespa in Greece. The project, written work – compilation, video and production Fortitude is her thesis and the full title is Fortitude the never-ending path to righteousness.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Anastasia Notta – I have just finished the video that accompanies the project – construction Vigor, and I am planning the painting extension of the project.

LC – How much has the city/country in which you grew up/born affected your work as an artist?
AN – Ιt is impossible not to be influenced by the light, the climate, the people and the environment in general where I live. Most of all, I have been affected by injustice as a scourge of society which is an international phenomenon. The title of the entire work is, the endless course of justice, with Fortitude.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
AN – The living conditions and my contact with nature that helps to isolate my own ideas-thoughts-desires from the bombardment of images and texts that overwhelm us are my inspiration.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
AN – Choosing topics is a conscious process. Initially, I plan how I will apply my idea to the materials, but instinct automatically leads me to find solutions based on my knowledge and to take advantage of the materials I have in front of me in relation to the subject in order to render as best as I can what I have I want to convey to the viewer.

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
AN – Happy and excited. Εach project always gives me an idea for the next one, is a reference but also an occasion to create something that will complement the project and works as part of a puzzle of my work and is my life diary calendar.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
AN – It is directly related to the inner search in relation to place, time and man, and justice, something that concerns me constantly.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the exhibition’s theme?
AN – To think in every place and time of the future the quality of justice that we deserve as human beings with the aim of the best quality of life for all, is a common element of the theme of the exhibition and my work.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
AN – I think it’s a good opportunity for each artist to discuss his work with other artists’ work from all over the world and in different parts of the world, something that the artist can hardly cover on his own.
