Luca Curci – Your work was exhibited during Hidden Rooms exhibition in Venice on November 2014: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Milan Del Vecchio – Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the event in Venice in person I do, however, remember Venice being my very favorite of the cities I visited in Italy when I was twelve years old. It is the quintessence of bohemian rhapsody.

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

M. D. V. – My short abstract motion graphics piece “Living Rooms”, actually (and foronce) seemed to match the “Hidden Rooms” theme very appropriately. “Living Rooms” is an abstract narrative about my father and I, represented as human hybrid houses. The theme is inspired by Carl Jung’s Collective Unconscious theory. In this way, each of the rooms in our houses represents some fragment of our psyches: both individually and intertwined. Therefore, the rooms serve as a metaphor for our unconscious;  literally, and much akin to Hidden Rooms.

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

M.D.V. – I am currently working on a series of portraits that reflect the same theme as the human hybrid houses in Living Rooms. Each portrait requires an intimate interview with each subject. In this way, the portraits will hopefully serve as both in sightful to a strangers’ eye, as well as therapeutic and reflective for the subject.

L. C. – What is art for you?

M. D. V. – Freedom.

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

M. D. V.  ArtExpo offers the opportunity for artists to communicate to vast and prestigious audiences. Providing publications to artists is a very helpful amenity, especially for emerging artists. A program that supports the arts, and most importantly the artists that contribute to it, is a program worth being involved in.

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

M. D. V. – Very much so. The greatest opportunity lies in the exposure granted.
