Luca Curci – When did you start practicing art and why?

Ašiku Svetlana – I discovered art at an early age in a studio and probably this foundation led me to study architecture. During my studies I have used photography as a method for exploring dynamism in architecture and relationship between people and built environment. Eventually, from a step in a design process it has become a creative process itself.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?

A.S. – For my artistic work I’m using a 30 year’s old analog camera and double exposure technique as a narrative to describe: mutual reflections between social identities and urban environment, relationship between natural and artificial, relativity of space and time.
My inspirations are sudden, magical, funny and first and foremost unplanned contacts of man and nature in built environment. I’m trying to capture those moments that will be lost in time . Also my friends are giving me inspiration as well as work of Maya Deren and Steven Meisel.

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

A.S. – I am currently working on street furniture design but always have a camera on my hand with all the senses on alert.

L.C. – What was the best advice given to you as an artist?

A.S. – The best advice I ever got as an artist came from an artist and it was that I stay smart, go ahead and be brave.

L.C. – What is art for you?

A.S. – I perceive art as a result of thoughts and observations offering beauty and magic of surroundings in which people live or they would like to live using visual, interactive and other media, if these observations stimulates their deepest thoughts, emotions or actions.

L.C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

A.S. – Working with International ArtExpo is a great experience that encourages creativity.

L.C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

A.S. – ArtExpo organization recognizes talented artists in fields of painting, sculpture/installation, photography, video art and performing art offering them the great opportunity to present their work to respectable collections, exhibitions, and general public. The most important thing is that International ArtExpo organization fully supports artists to set up their solo or group exhibition, participate in artist residence and manages their work to the exhibitions in the cities of the world.
