L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

A. V. – Future memories? well, as Albert Einstein had mentioned once: “Time and space are modes by which we think an not conditions in which we live.” The artwork I presented for the event is part of a memory.  My basic concept is the following : ”A life articulated in the void, deprived of every stimulus and devoid of any meaning, must correspond to a “frozen” time, without a flow. A time that knows no past or present, static, unmoving, a bad eternity…Narrative-shots in ruins-skin-the soul of things) Every time there is an intense emotion it’s like a smoke/mist covering everything around. Some other times, it’s as if it’s embracing everything and others as if it’s encaging everything. Fear, love, hatred, all create smoke(mist) of varying density,width and colour. Everything disperses like smoke, except when they merge into a wall (the dream of the guy(man?) by the door produces some smoke, as if reaching a conclusion).”

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

A. V. – I just finished my new experimental film ‘skin deep’ Its an Hymn to Eros( play with love, Like playing with dreams,not fearing they don’t exist).

L. C. – What is art for you?

A. V. – Art is not a thing ,  it is a way. Experimentation is the key to develop any idea.

A. V. – They certainly can, real good organization and a great opportunity for artists.
