LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
NANCY TRUEMAN –
Art is an expression of life, and it’s essential to the human experience. People often think art isn’t important but it’s the very essence of our life and what gives moments meaning and joy whether it be through books, music, painting, theatre or dance. To me, art has played a role in my life for decades and became especially important once I studied it for my undergraduate and master’s degree. I imagine I will always have an artistic and creative outlet in my life.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
NT –
Exploring sound and spirituality in a creative capacity. How sound can be used to heal, relax and offer people a peaceful experience whether it’s in a studio, gallery or home. I am interested in how art and spirituality have been paired together for centuries but in recent and contemporary times, not so much. But often the creation and making of art itself is described as a quite spiritual experience, being connected to oneself, the divine when being artistically expressive.

LC – In your opinion what role does an artist play in society and contemporary art?
NT –
Artists are vital. Without art, we don’t have life. They are essential to moving society forward as artists often are thought leaders on various topics, breaking taboos and generating positive change. Artists touch so many aspects of our daily life in modern society from the music we listen to on our phones to the films we watch in the cinema. Art touches our lives every single day in so many capacities.

LC – What is your creative process like?
NT –
Ongoing, continual, always searching. I am inherently creative and don’t analyse my creative process until usually after the process. I tend to work daily with sound and experiment with various instruments, locations, and settings. My creative process allows me to be in the present moment without a critical, thinking mind. I believe this is why I am drawn to it as it’s quite a meditative experience. I can be in the “flow” and time passes without me being aware.

LC – Did your style change over the years? If yes, then in which way?
NT –
I have always worked in multimedia from textiles, sculpture, painting and installation work but now only with sound. I did work with sound a little bit in my undergraduate at university specifically in site-specific installation work but I have started working entirely with sound including gongs, singing bowls, chimes, flutes and so many more!

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How does it inspire you?
NT –
Relevant in modern society, and inspires me to keep exploring new ways of self-expression and connection to others, the world and the universe. Borderless is especially relevant now with technology connecting all corners of the globe. It allows for such incredible opportunities for sharing ideas.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
NT –
I like how it’s incredibly inclusive, giving all artists from all backgrounds, cultures, and countries an opportunity to express themselves and be a part of the ITSLIQUID experience. Its representation in most continents in the world allows for such an amazing transmission of artistic and creative endeavours.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
NT –
Yes! I loved it. The team is fabulous and fun while being professional throughout the entire process. Totally recommend! Definitely want to continue working with you in the future!
