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.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
