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?

Romina Mejac – I was not able to be personally present in Venice those days of Hidden Rooms exhibition, but I was very happy to be able to exhibit my work anyway. Since I have found out that I have been given this opportunity, I was very satisfied and accepted the offer for exhibiting without having second thoughts.

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

R. M. Well, the artwork I presented in Venice had everything to do with the festival’s theme. The theme was connecting artworks in different ways..and my work was fulfilling all of those propositions; it was supposed to be: contemporary art and video art, dance and body, experimental and performance, so when I saw that I already have done the film that includes all of this propositions, I had no doubt weather to send my work to the International ArtExpo or not. It was just perfect platform for presenting my film.

Romina MejakThe work is a story about the journey into the deepest and darkest erotic creatures of womens beings using the movement and the emotions as a while to get there. In metaphysical sense movement stands beyond just physically moving of the body and in an artistic sense becomes the means of beautifying. When the body is moved by emotions, the movement becomes a unique decoration for the body, unrepeatable, inspiring and genuine. The spirit is permanent, inexhaustible source of inspiration for endless research and development of intuition, imagination and creativity. In that case, the movement becomes a decoration when driven by emotion, and to dance the emotion means to let the beauty of existing passionately experience threw taking on a unique shape. Emotion becomes decoration. Movement is a universal language addressed to the physical and the spiritual, mind and heart, material and divine. Soul by movement speaks the language of the universe. This artwork is an invitation to discover, disclose and to launch the spirit to the ecstasy of existence!

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

R. M. – Currently I have had some exhibitions and dance performances with contemporary dancers in Croatia, so I was more dedicated to making the costumes and body object pieces. I always act in the moment when it comes to art and when this moment comes, I work more than I can speak about it because more I talk about it, more I lose the intensity of the inspiration.

L. C.What is art for you?

R. M. Art is all and art is in everything. It is an emotion, not the term. It is just the question whether we see it that way or not! For me my life is art and I think that if every aspect of life is not connected in an artistic, magical way to the universe, than there is always a feeling that something is missing. But when this connection exists..no matter what we are talking about..we are talking about magic..about art. In that way any person can be the artist, and in that way the artist does not need the admirer, he lives his art for himself and for the sensations that his life/art allows him to enjoy the blessing of understanding that he is a mighty creator and that that magic is in every single part of his life.

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

R. M. – International ArtExpo is an independent group interested most of all into contemporary art and video art. It organises international events in museums, galleries and public institutions around the world. In Croatia does not exist something like that, so it is great that International ArtExpo offers the opportunity on an international basis and in this way it connects artists and art from different parts of the world in one same moment. With the use of new technologies it is simple to send an artwork or a part of it on the other side of the world with a click of a mouse on the personal computer…and it is amazing what kind of treasures can be hidden (and in this way found) behind those simple clicks…So for those who are searching for a platform like this to help them exhibit own works worldwide, it is a simple and great opportunity.
