Interview: Gia Asmundo
Luca Curci
talks with Gia Asmundo during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Gia Asmundo di Gisira was born in Catania, Sicily, in 1966. Gia studied in Milan where she graduated in Graphic Design at IED. From a very young age, she devoted herself to art by filling school diaries with abstract figures and geometric shapes. Her art is about creating continuous illusions; often there is an element of disturbance in the geometric order of lines and curves, something happens to sabotage the first look of the user. “When I paint I like to get lost in my line that seems casual but at the same time dictated by a calculated logic is in search of an achieved balance. I entrust myself to the transformation of the work that takes place under my eyes, almost incredulous”. Gia defines her work as a visceral release without filters without conditioning, leaving others to perceive the emotions of the color. Since 1992, she participated in numerous collective and personal exhibitions between Italy and the United States.

Luca Curci – Which subject are you working on?
Gia Asmundo – My new project is linked to a creation of a three-dimensional work, where a game of composition and decomposition of several elements is the protagonist.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
GA –
Thanks to an evolutionary process passed through the experimentation of the use of color and emotions, that arise from it combined with the rationality of the graphic sign.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
GA –
The patience required for the realization of the work.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
GA –
It’s always been hard but today it’s easier with technology that allows the works to be visible in the world by shortening distances.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
GA –
It depends on what I will create. Sometimes I use my instinct and my feelings, other times, especially when I do graphic work, I use to reasoned it more.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
GA –
I am fascinated by the contest of this festival “The Body Language” that leads you to explore the hidden parts of our identity. For me, the theme of the labyrinth, of falling away and finding oneself, which has always characterized my graphic works, is intriguing.

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
GA –
“Exit” is the door to get out of the labyrinth of our heart and mind. Only we have the key, sewn under our skin.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
GA –
I think it’s an excellent organization carried out whit extreme professionalism.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
GA –
Yes, I did enjoy it a lot.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
GA –
I find it difficult to add suggestions to what I already find perfect! Thank you for your hospitality.
