Luca Curci talks with Giacomo Giannelli during ALCHEMIC BODY at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

Giacomo Giannelli is an Italian Fine Art photographer based in London. With a background in storytelling, he has always been fascinated by all forms of art from a very young age. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, where he was able to develop his artistic style, in particular his photography skills, by exploring different ideas and details with a modern eye and digital equipment.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Giacomo Giannelli – Art is a means of communicating a mood, a thought, an emotion, oneself. It is certainly the deepest expression of the artist’s personality, and by artist I mean all those who feel the need to tell themselves through a medium. Wrapped also through silence, understood in a transversal way. I often do creative activities with children. It is exciting to see their insecurity, their amazement, the love they feel in realizing their work of art without any technique but only based on their desire to communicate to us what they feel.

LC – What are you currently working on?
GG – At the moment I am completing the editing of The White Foam collection. Also, I am planning trips to continue working on two projects that I have very much at heart: Somewhere and Petrol Station – both born recently thanks to some trips I made. Somewhere is a collection of small places, hidden glimpses that draw our attention for a moment and bring us back to an intimate dimension. Petrol Station is a journey through time, cultures and identities of a people through one that is the symbol of freedom, travel and change.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
GG – I believe that everything that happens in our life path happens for a reason. This leads me to grasp those small signs that could escape distracted eyes. I find inspiration by observing, touching, listening and letting my “I” get excited. These are moments that cannot be explained, you have to live them.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
GG – It’s all inspiring! I start from the desire to take the right photo of that object, place or person that is giving you that particular emotion. Going through the difficulty of choosing the right photo. This is the passage I love least, choose in post-production. I feel like I’m leaving a piece of me at home. Up to the Fine Art print that adds the feeling of reality to the work. But the greatest pleasure comes when, during an exhibition, the art lover stops to look at my artwork and almost wants to touch it, to enter inside. Usually, he is the one who establishes that special relationship with my work and buys it.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
GG – My style has not changed but my way of looking inside myself. I was looking for myself and, out of fear, I did it only superficially. And this can be seen if you compare my works overtime. My research has led me more and more towards an intense drama, a much more cinematic and introspective look that only the strong contrasts of the dark light can give you.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
GG – I think it is interesting to propose and develop a concept that connects the human body to the four natural elements through art in all its facets. I find that everything is closely connected both on a chemical and metaphysical level. This led me to participate and present Goodbye Autumn.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
GG – With Goodbye Autumn I wanted to represent the earth closely connected with our body in its deepest state. Death or/and rebirth.
Energy that tends downwards.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
GG – ITSLIQUID is present in Venice, one of the most beautiful cities of art, and in the international city of London. Therefore, it offers good visibility especially for young artists, without forgetting its platform on the Internet.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
GG – I think it was very interesting, and above all inspiring in the development of some concepts through a point of view that I had not previously considered.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
GG – It was interesting to have several events during the performance. This has brought visibility and obviously 360-degree openness in the modern concept of art and exhibition spaces. I hope that ITSLIQUID GROUP can further expand its contacts with Art Lovers, collectors and buyers in London through targeted and broad advertising.

INTERVIEW: BIRGIT GÜNTHER

Interviews | November 26, 2020

I studied interior design with painting at Prof. Manfred Hollmann at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. I was born 1962 in Ludwigsburg, Germany, and I have been living and working in Munich for over 35 years. I find inspiration for my painting in nature and through people which I interpret in different ways. Colors, color compositions, color sensations and spatial effects are important of my work, which should reflect the joy of life. A certain motif is not always easily recognizable in the abstract paintings. The viewers are invited to feel lightness, openness or tensions and to let their emotions run free. I am a member of a professional group of female painters. We meet annually and discuss new techniques with lecturers and develop and improve our painting skills. Read more
