Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
André Colinet –
A motherless and tough childhood. I am a child of Belgian colonial history in Congo.

LC – What is art for you?
AC –
It’s a form of communication which is conceptual, emotional and much more. It’s not only what you tell but how you tell. The most efficient way to talk about the mysteries of the world.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
AC –
I am always surprised myself when I’m creating. I like working with time based art, Sculpting in time.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
AC – It starts with a fascination, a visionary experience, an inspiration. I never decide, it’s unexpected. I learned to accept this creative working process.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
AC – They all have specific neurological qualities which allow them to handle other media than common verbal language . Some of them have a strong sensibility and specific visions and insights on the world which normal people don’t have. Art should help people to understand themselves.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
AC –
We all have fragmented mental identities, certainly growing children who are discovering themselves and their place in society.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
AC –
It’s a poetic and contemplative movie which has its place in the art world.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
AC –
Great opportunity! This work didn’t find it’s place in the classic film world.
