Interview: Laura Sandroni
Luca Curci talks with Laura Sandroni during Venice International Art Fair 2020 and Fragmented Identities, second appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Laura Sandroni was born in Varese in 1985. She approaches art and painting since she was a child, she carries on this passion over the years as a self-taught. His works are used for a strong use of color which she uses as an emotional and communicative vehicle. Over the years his artistic career has been enriched with lived experiences and personal growth that leads to expressing this new maturation and self-knowledge on canvas. His works are the primary channel with which he transmits the changes and emotional states that are part of life, sensations and feelings that feed the soul and body and that often happens in the form of female figures. He prefers acrylic that in many of his creations he uses with the only help of his hands and body, as an extension of his own person and expressive tool. Curious and attentive observer, she transmits what strikes her through painting and writing, showing a strong inclination to experiment and overcome her own internal limits.

Luca Curci – What does art represent for you?
Laura Sandroni –
Freedom. Art, painting as well as writing are my way of expressing what I feel, what I live. My emotions. Without constraints, brakes or preconceptions. In the most visceral and instinctive way possible.

LC – What is your background? What were the experiences that most influenced your work?
LS –
I don’t have a course of study in the artistic field. I have always followed an impulse that has led me to experiment over the years as a self-taught person. My works come from what I feel and what I live. They are part of my path of knowledge and life. Certainly an important turning point for me came when I realized and accepted a painful event in my life. And from there, then, having left behind a life that was no longer “mine”. Home, safe work, etc. to follow what I felt. Who I am.

LC – What is the role of the artist in society? And contemporary art?
LS –
I believe it is to communicate. To open a passage, a passage, to something intimate, invisible or even obvious, but in a different light. Giving multiple meanings and interpretations to what is known. To rediscover it in a new key. A way to eliminate stereotypes and open the way to new shapes, colors, visions, in art and in life.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
LS –
From what I live. I observe, listen, feel on the skin and in the stomach. Emotions of all kinds, “beautiful” or “ugly”, although these two concepts may exist. Every emotion deserves to be lived fully, without restraints. And it is from the emotions that my works are born. It’s my way to get them out. To experience them twice.

LC – Are your works focused on a specific theme?
LS –
No, they arise from a spur of the moment. If you want to talk about the subject I could say that of the human emotional sphere

LC – What is the message of the work you presented in this exhibition? How is it connected with the theme of the whole festival?
LS
-The work exhibited during the festival, UNTITLED, represents a body. It has no face, no name. It exists but cannot be seen. You see it but you don’t know it. It shows itself without really showing itself. Which is what happens in today’s society. How many times do you not see who you are in front of? Do you not recognize who is similar to us? By putting up barriers of all kinds. Until you don’t even recognize or see yourself.

LC – How are the works presented in our exhibition connected to the theme of the festival?
LS –
The body for me is the main vehicle of all emotion. We feel them on the skin, in the heartbeat, in the facial expressions, in the movements. I paint bodies with the body. An intertwining of matter, spirit and places. Without borders, of any kind. This is why I think they are connected to the festival.

LC – What do you think of the ITSLIQUID platform?
LS –
I think it is an excellent opportunity to meet different cultures and visions. A look at the world.
