Luca Curci – What do you think about the concept of CONTEMPORARY VENICE EXTENDED? In which way did inspire you?

Maria Gyarmati – Venice itself is a very spectacular place that is perfect for artistic events. The Palazzo Flangini where CONTEMPORARY VENICE EXTENDED took place has one of the doors that leads straight to the water, water gives big energy and inspiration.

 

L. C. – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our event.

M. G. – “StereoDance” is the first part of the stereo video project. The figure of the dancer is a hidden stereo image in each frame. The dancer is visible when viewed in the form of normal video, however, switching to stereo images, the frame area gains volume and we see only the ghost of the character in stereo space. As a child such stereo images seemed magical: we decided to revive them.

L. C. – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

M. G. – Most of my artworks are focused on the interactive effect. That could be documental project or surreal, but it always has a point when the audience can see it in own way, open it a bit more and look deeper.

 

L. C. – Did you style change over the years? How?

M. G. – I’m lucky, I can choose different art spheres and keep the same interactive effect. Few years ago I couldn’t imagine that will work on a serious documental project for example. And it is quiet dangerous experiment, cause filming have to go in Russia and government there is not so very tolerant to artists.

L. C. – What about your artistic research?

M. G. – Meeting different artists and participating different exhibitions change you and your style, inspire you to try something new. While the fresh understanding of yourself and your goals arriving, you choose the topics that are more close and important for real you.

 

L. C. – Are you interested in future collaborations with our organization?

M. G. – Sure, the organizers are very talented people, they choose really great places for the exhibitions, they are really helpful and provide a great artistic support.

 

L. C. – Do you think that this experience could be useful for artists and can contribute to increase personal background?

M. G. – It is definitely so.
