Interiew: Catia Hauberg
Luca Curci 
talks with Catia Hauberg during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2022, at ITSLIQUID Art Space – Venice Grand Canal.

The Artist and Scenographer Catia Hauberg Engel have developed Mobiles during the pandemic, from the secret depths of dark longing and reflection of the new fragile state experienced in these times. The objects are on purpose fragile and simple since they contain emotions born under the isolation, desperation, and melancholy of the days we go through and still fight to breakthrough. The ArtMobiles move gently, or dance in strange ways, in full interaction with a passing person or anything else moving air.

Luca Curci – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
Catia Hauberg
– I am a scenographer and space artist and work mostly with stage design and art installation. During the pandemic, I also started to build mobiles, having a need for creating art on a smaller scale, expressing something via the tactile sense, which interacts with the human body and mind in a different way.

LC – What are you currently working on?
CH –
Coming scenography’s, art projects and mobiles.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue?
CH –
Existential themes. The immense wonder of being alive.

LC – What is your preferred subject if, there is any?
CH –
I am deeply concerned with how people’s living conditions are, and how they react to the circumstances of our time.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
CH – I use the spatial and the sensual to evoke the underlying layers in the narrative, in order to express the universality of the work. My focus is on dynamic stage design.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
CH – Yes. I think THE BODY LANGUAGE theme is very well chosen these days, and since I have worked with the feeling of how the pandemic isolation has been affecting the inner life and the physical sensation, it’s a theme I can easily connect to. I have developed Mobiles during the pandemic, from the secret depths of dark longing and reflection of the new fragile state experienced in these times. These objects are on purpose fragile and simple since they contain emotions born under the isolation, desperation, and melancholy of the days we go through and still fight to breakthrough. The ArtMobiles move gently, or dance in strange ways, in full interaction with a passing person or anything else moving air.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
CH – I think it’s a vivid and relevant platform, where people and artists from all over can meet, crossing borders and communities.
