Interview: Sofia Muzio
Luca Curci
talks with Sofia Muzio during Venice International Art Fair 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

My inspirations and reflections are driven by personal, sometimes intimite moments. I am interested to challenge myself to explore how surroundings, people I meet and materials I touch impact on my pre-set values. I was born and raised in Italy. After graduating in architecture I moved to London and Berlin, where I lived and worked as an architect for almost 2 decades. I find it very interesting to live the day to day life in different countries: work, shopping, queuing… One’s own personality enters into an osmosis with the country. Currently I am based in Milan. I think our homeland is something we carry with us, it is the sum of the experiences we have, the places we live in and the bonds we build.

LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
SOFIA MUZIO
– For me art is a personal statement, as a reflection on the things that touch you.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
SM
– It is a life enduring companion who evolves as I evolve. Personally, I am a trained architect, and therefore have started my artistic journey beginning from the head and slowly moving towards the stomach.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
SM
– Artist today becomes a mainstream-phenomena, almost entertainers. Art on the other hand remains a controversial and lonely topic. The society always needs time to catch up with viewpoints that art proposes.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
SM
– From a technical point of view my style has evolved from painting to assemblage, where materials, particularly paper, and tridimensionality take the stage.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
SM
– A theme I am exploring is the idea that multiplication of the same can lead to surprisingly different characters. I am also interested in society and perception of it.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition?
SM
– I was inspired by the flock of birds, by the flow of many individuals that form a larger element. It is an abstract work that invites the viewer to give his own interpretation, the composition can evoke a sensation of movement, still-life or urban topography. The opera changes appearance with the changing light angle, making it an organic three dimensional system.

LC – How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival? In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
SM
– It is a conceptual landscape which may allow the viewer to look into it and develop a personal relationship.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
SM
– I like your topics because they can stimulate a contemporary debate and hopefully also a collection of diverse interpretations.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
SM
– The fact that ITSLIQUID Group provides a platform for artists in itself is an opportunity to be seen and heard.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
SM
– Generally very positive because you provide a chance to go public.

Rather than self-taught in this field, I practised a lot of black and white film which I developed and printed myself. Then around the age of 16, I got into photography and color film printing. I also had the opportunity to work on set photos for a feature film in the 1976s. Read more
