Luca Curci – What is art for you?

Sandra Rojo – Art is a way to express my own feelings to other people through the vision of my own work.

LC – What are you currently working on?

SR – I have just opened a new solo exhibition “Desiderium et Odi” about feelings and emotions through the images. Recently I participated with an original artwork reinterpreting the Panton chair for it’s 50 anniversary for Vitra. And my next challenge will be in Beijing (China) for Mini Living BMW.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?

SR – Everywhere: other artists, music, books, philosophy… and of course, in self-knowledge of myself, trying to discover what is worth and how to share it with others through art.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?

SR – First of all, the concept. Finding something relevant to tell and work with it. And second, from that idea, find a way to making it true.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?

SR – Sure! Everything you show to others at last have an impact to your own work, the same as the vision they have of it, what they share and how they live it and appreciate it. At last, you also construct a bigger image of your work and your vision through all this little pieces of their opinion and their experience.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this contest? In which way did it inspire you?

SR – Any challenge in itself is inspiring. Thinking and creating something new, both are exciting and helps you to continue growing as an artist.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our event is connected with the contest’s theme?

SR – For It’s Liquid contest I wanted to present a photographic artwork that was related to architecture and spaces, the duality in the concept between its shapes and colors, as well as another view from a place elevated to art. There’s always another vision in “ordinary” things.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?

SR – I think it’s a great place to share and discover new emerging artists, and a platform that grow a great community around art.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?

SR – A great opportunity to know other perspectives in art. And it also would be fantastic if there was the possibility of organizing it in an exhibition that could be visited in the main cities of the world.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?

SR – Maybe It’s Liquid would need an Instagram account to make it count a little bit more, because nowadays it’s a great platform to share and talk about art, and I think It’s Liquid has to be a part of it to make it greater.
