Although her artwork is very diverse – from photography and video, to sculptures and installations – she is interested in creating non-verbal places, where the orientation of the viewer shifts through a physical and a psychological experience. Her work plays with rhythm, scale and textures to find new speeds, paths, patterns, and orientations providing fluid and interactive experiences. She also investigates the body-mind duality, intrinsic to the human condition.

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

Silvia Faraco Lasmar –  I was not able to attend the show in person but it was amazing to be selected to participate with this incredible group of artists from different nationalities who create experimental and contemporary work. Venice has always been an icon of beauty, architecture, and art. It feels really special to screen my work in this city.

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

S. F. L. – Ecdise is an experimental video that approaches the individual experience of life as an organism revealing the discomfort of being so fragile and yet so beautiful. Our essence is inseparable from what constitutes us in our corporeality. My piece is linked to the festival’s theme Hybrid Identities because it is about dualities inherent to the human condition.
