Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
I-Vanessa Rumstajn – In younger days, I’d been dancing a lot which has an impact on my paintings. My works are influenced by street culture such as graffiti. Greek mythology and ancient art.

LC – What are you currently working on?
IVR – A new “SHE” painting. And more.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
IVR – Encouragement, philosophy, poetry, awareness, creativity, building, creating, culture ..

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
IVR – The most challenging part is what colours I choose to include. Because of the light, emotions we people experience through colours, blockages etc..

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
IVR – No.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
IVR – It’s cool and I’m grateful to be a part of it. Really, really like the vision.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
IVR – In this exhibition, I’d choose to showcase two piece of artworks. One about finding balance. Balance in your inner self and outer. Painting called “Balance”.  The other one, called “Sound Of Our Genes”. It’s a DJ girl. It’s about what’s to be found in our genes. How culture and history evolves it. Through, example what we hear from different sounds/ frequencies. Profoundly explained, how our body exude energies in ex. sounds, based on our own energy which is also, linked to our identity. The sound that reaches out from our inner. While using the exact same sound as someone, it’s the individual part when someone else dj’s, or hit a drum, depending on the appearance of our inner feelings. (Lets say two humans equally hit the drum.)
The energy that bounces out from the drum when you hit the drum, can be explained, as healing a part of ourselves.  The paintings are connected to the festivals theme as it can identify “the hidden parts of our identities”, as LIQUID ROOM, describes. The nature of life and how we’re viewing things from a landscape.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
IVR – Yes!!

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
IVR – Yes. Simple communication.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
IVR – An art scene, for everyone. And a group which emerges artists to show their art.
