Interview: Sarah Yammine
Luca Curci talks with Sarah Yammine during the 6th Edition of ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023, at ITSLIQUID Monti -Rome Art Space.

“I had to find a way to express my inner feelings and burst out my emotions. Creating and painting is my way of healing, loving, living and processing life. The contrast of colours, the pencil lines, the shapes I create are the fruit of the collaboration between my unconscious universe and the outside universe.”

LUCA CURCI – What’s your background?
SARAH YAMMINE –
I was born in Venezuela, my mother is an amazing Italian woman ahead of her time, who lived her life to the full, but this meant that to follow her dreams life was not that easy for us children, art became my own personal psychologist, it helps me see everything in a different perspective and to survive the world and events around me that often where overwhelming. Art helped me to compartmentalize every experience in order to understand them, accept them and not let them overwhelm me. At the age of 10, I moved to Italy, studied there at the ISA in Civita Castellana VT, then started university at the Academia di belle arti in Rome, and then finished my studies in London at the London Metropolitan University. In 2013 became a mother for the first time and then went on and had another child in 2016. and then we had COVID so now I feel ready to share all my ideas with the world through the art media.

LC – What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
SY –
I took a bit of every experience I had and always carry it with me but ultimately the use of art as my personal psychologist is the key to my art, I put my mind to sleep with it, some people need drugs I need Art.

LC – Which subject are you working on? 
SY-
I am working on the relationship between our everyday life and our social media life my inspiration comes from the people around me their love, happiness, secrets, passions and their dramas.

LC – What issues do you intend to deal with in the future?
SY –
I would like to look into the transition of a woman’s life, a free but slave woman and the becoming of a mother all stages of a woman their unlived passions or the lived ones, betrayals if we can call them so are we ever free? I would also like to look into nature and architecture, the harmony between abandoned buildings and nature, and all this hopefully transmitted in paintings.

LC – What are the three hashtags essential to define your poetics that you could not give up? 
SY –
#ART #LIFE #PAINT

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
SY –
My subjects are always reasoned but they are ultimately born instinctively as every moment of my life I am thinking of the next paint or work I would like to create.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event?
SY  –
I wanted to show the relationship between social media and how we consciously expose our most private and hidden sides moments to the mega world of the media. How it has now become one with our being, one does not exist without the other, but one may or may not be connected to our actual reality, yet a big part of it, this contradicting relationship between the user and the APP, this is why my subjects are all painted without a specific background, so the viewer can just insert them wherever their imagination may take them, just like we do in social media.

LC – How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
SY –
These paintings relate to the exhibition through the concept of mixing identities between the incredible communicational world of social media and our consciousness or unconsciousness.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
SY –
I thought it was inspirational and very relevant to today’s society.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
SY –
I believe it is a great initiative and it fills a Gap in the ever-growing Art world.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
SY –
It was well organised with great communication skills, and their locations are also impressive.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
SY –
Its liquid multiple possibilities of exhibiting in more than one part of the world give a great opportunity to artists enabling them to show their ideas to different kinds of viewers.
