Luca Curci – 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?

Lea Dolinksy – My videos are really connected to the issue of the Festival. The idea was to create a virtual space for exhibition with my drawings, reliefs and sculptures, IDENTITY. With the superposition of different images of PARIS from 1989, the new buildings on the old ones, or even the contrary, I got a collaged colorful always changing City where all is bubbling inside her.

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

L.D. – I currently work at my studio sculpting, drawing, designing, teaching, and documenting sketches (I have a lot of them and they enable to influence my new Projects). Most of my sculptures are Environmental and Outdoor Sculptures where my architecture  background  get proper expression.
