Interview: Lavinia Longhetto

Luca Curci talks with artist Lavinia Longhetto during LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH exhibition in Venice.
Lavinia Longhetto is a polyhedric artist, photographer and engraver, born in 1986 near Treviso, North of Italy. Graduated in Engraving Art at Fine Arts Academy of Venice. Her artworks are about an exasperated body that suffers and loses out violence. In 2012 she founded her first social art project “IN VIOLENCE” showing the effects of violence on body, both physically and psychologically. This huge bodied and evolving project has been exhibited in Venice for the Art Festival of Giudecca on September 2013 and 2014; in a solo exhibition curated by a young association of Treviso on July 2013, in a collective exhibition for the World Day Against Violence on Women in Portogruaro on November 2014.

She is actually collaborating with other artists for the creation of another project: TRANSFIGURAZIONI, an audiovisual, graphic and pictorial analysis about violence, exhibited at Forte Mezzacapo of Mestre on October 2014. Drawing is her main instrument of work, then she dedicates to engraving and photography. Her photos have been mentioned and published in many photo contests and web sites like Nikon Talents 2012 and PhotoVogue, and she takes photo of architecture, reportage, and all mixed with the constant presence of a human figure. Actually she works and lives in Italy and creates social and independent art projects.

Luca Curci – Your work has just been exhibited during LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH exhibition in Venice: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Lavinia Longhetto – I’m happy and satisfied of this experience, the place was wonderful, unfortunately I didn’t have enough time and opportunity to talk more with other artists, but anyway it’s been an interesting experience.  

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

L. L. – My work “Organicità” is about body and its organic and liquid being. The glue I used for this artwork in particular and for other works too, it is the main liquid element. This organic body doesn’t exhibit itself, it shows its fluid. This body lives thanks to this fluid.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

L. L. – I’m currently working on body theme, on its expression through simple and discontinuous sign and on its “organicity”, working with poor materials.

L. C. – What is art for you?

L. L. – Art is pure expression of life, it’s emotion, pure strength and weakness. In a sort of way, I think art must be biographical, our art must (should) reflect not only our emotions, but also our past and present, what we live and how we live and feel every day, through our body.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

L. L. – It’s a very good  and professional organization.

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

L. L. – Yes, for sure, but I think it should do more advertising not only through the internet, but also through other communication channels.
