Interview: Immacolata Giordano
Luca Curci
talks with Immacolata Giordano during MIXING IDENTITIES, second appointment of CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023, held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

“I am a non-professional photographer based in Italy. I have approached photography in the last fifteen years as an autodidact and, only recently, I have started to submit my photos for competitions and exhibitions. I love experimenting with the light to express my way of seeing, dedicating myself in particular to creative and street photography”.

Luca Curci – When you take photos, are you usually inspired by the situation or do you find inspiration in yourself?
Immacolata Giordano –
Dedicating myself mainly to street photography, it’s usually the situation that gives me the opportunity to find inspiration. I’m always looking for the decisive moment or the detail that allows me to express a particular idea that is already inside me.

LC – How important is the editing process in your work? How’s yours?
IG –
The editing is important to better represent my vision and language. For example, black-and-white editing gives me the opportunity to make a synthesis between different elements of the same image, such as a subject and its reflection, placing them in a timeless dimension.

LC – What are the three hashtags essential to define your poetics that you could not give up?
IG –
I’m not very skilled with social media mechanisms…I think that in the last period, the hashtags I use the most are #blackandwhite #streetphotography and #dimensions which is the title of my new project.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
IG –
I don’t think I can answer this question…I’ve only recently approached the world of art and I’m trying to find out!

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
IG –
I use art to express my particular way of seeing mainly through photography and the creative use of light. I don’t really like writing or talking about myself, but images give me the opportunity to tell much more than I could do with words.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the exhibition or as a part of preexisting works? Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
IG –
“Venetian Abstract” is part of the Reflections project and was taken in Venice at Palazzo Franchetti, on the occasion of the Glasstress 2017 exhibition. The architecture of Palazzo Franchetti and the view of the Venetian palaces are reflected in one of the works on display made up of numerous glass fragments. The reflective surfaces represent the meeting point between the reality in which we live and other imaginary realities, offering themselves as portals to other dimensions. The choice of black and white is useful for creating a synthesis between the reflective surface and the reflections of many fragments of reality.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
IG –
I think it is a very good platform for curating and promoting artists.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
IG –
I can’t give any suggestions as my experience is limited at the moment

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
IG –
Yes, I really liked it, I hope there will be other opportunities!
