Interview: Clara Céna

Luca Curci talks with Clara Céna during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2019 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space. 

My father studed in the arts school and he was my mentor, I begun to paint and later I made argentic or digital photography. I live in the north of France, and I made a lot of photographies from people and musiciens. Then I lived near Paris.  I attented the School of Fine Arts in Lille, France: drawing classes with the painter Roger Frézin and I studed also at School of Visual Arts in Lille: watercolor, gouache, acrylic.

Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Clara Céna – The 3 photos which are exhibited, derive from this series that I have been working on, for several years.

LC – What is art for you?
CC – Art is a personal way of saying things ,which the artist needs to evoke, namely criticism on the real world, society, which can be portrayed by an emotional or conceptual representation. Art is the heritage of a unique staging. Art needs to be surprising and amazing. But the latter is also present to shake things up and when it really questions, one has the desire to own a piece of art work. This goes without saying but art is present to pass on, trigger the public’s curiosity and give the latter the desire, to forge ahead.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
CC – The challenge is of course, to invite people but also journalists, art critics, collectors who shall broadcast the works and make them evolve. Without all these elements, an artist and his or her work,are sentenced to death. My challenge and my struggle is to work by always taking things up a notch, with my ideas and my technique. Last but not least, I wish to recognized, more than to be known.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
CC – The festival is definitely an interesting process, due to the choice of the place which welcomes so many cultures from various parts of the world. This causes exchanges, which gives life to the art work but also boosts the artist. It helps the artist come out of a sort of a bubble.
