Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Inara Vidal – I studied sculpture in college and after that, I specialized in contemporary art history with an emphasis on photography. The studies of artistic anatomy during the sculpture course, modelling the body in parts, hands, feet, face, its fragmentation that can be recombined have a strong influence in my works to the present.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
IV – I am working on the idea of the female body and the breaking out of its idealized image.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
IV – I like to research about the representation of the human body and I also think a lot about its relationships with machines, technologies, spaces, movements.

LC – What is your creative process like?
IV – My creative process arises both from daily experiences, experiencing the world as it is presented and reflecting about it and also from working with materials such as clay, with collages or a simple pencil on paper. Some materials sharpen my curiosity and seem to trigger the creation of images when I start to deal with them.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
IV – It depends because each research is different. The final part of the process is usually challenging, sometimes I struggle to see the work as I have imagined.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
IV – I think the concept of the festival inspires us to reflect, as artists and as viewers, about the body and everything that surrounds it, crosses it, modifies it. We are at a special moment in our history as a sapiens species.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
IV – Casulos de Seda is a video artwork created in December 2018.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
IV – I consider ITSLIQUID Group to be an excellent opportunity for artists to publicize their work.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services?
IV – Yes, I would suggest a collaboration with the platform because the services are good.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
IV – I think ITSLIQUID Group is an admirable initiative that encompasses several areas of creation offering the opportunity to get to know what is currently being produced in different places on the planet.

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
