Interview: Sima Malekzadeh
Luca Curci talks with Sima Malekzadeh during THE SKIN PROJECT, at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

I’m Sima Malekzadeh, a painter from Iran. I was born on 1987 and grew up in a great city, Shiraz. I have interest in art, especially painting from childhood which was encouraged by going to painting class and met my teacher Ladan. I always wanted to be a painter. Nevertheless, I was graduated in architecture at first and then I continued my education in painting and took my master’s degree. I have been working in my atelier since I was educated, and I participated in some exhibition in Iran, Italy, France and Britain.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Sima Malekzadeh –
As a painter, every moment, meaning or feeling has its own picture in my mind. Art is my way to understand them, and picture is my vague and at the same time clear language.

LC – What are you currently working on?
SM –
I’m working on a series which is a search for relation between human body and its environment just as a form. Myths and language are the subjects I consider at the same time, which are the main context of my work.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
SM –
Language and its relation to form is my main concern now, however I inspire by work of literature and my daily life’s picture more than everything else.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
SM –
Being an artist has its own challenges all times just like these days. The best part is you can do what you really want, and the toughest one is to believe in your art, stay creative and continue working.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
SM –
Unfortunately, I couldn’t be in the gallery and speak with visitors but people who I could contact them said impressive things about my work.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
SM –
I think my concern is near to the event concept which contain humanistic perspective. Our bodies’ ability to express ourselves inspire me.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
SM –
Thank you for your attention. The work is from a series which I have focused on during 3 last years.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
SM –
Creating a situation for artists to show their artworks and attract audience plays an essential role in presenting artists, especially in artistic circles. ITSLIQUID GROUP helped me to do it, so I’m deeply grateful.

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

Interview: Paula Anta

Interviews | February 9, 2021

Paula Anta arranges her work in photography series deriving from ideas which are developed on the ground, mostly through stage settings which form up the resulting image by way of installation. The relationship between nature and the artificiality of man-made structures, together with history and voyage, form the core of her work which, from a conceptual point of view, is focused on depicting the significance of each landscape as a cultural fact in itself.
