Interview: Tiziana Bologna
Luca Curci
talks with Tiziana Bologna during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Tiziana, born Tiziana Bologna, was born in Castelvetrano on May 5, 2002. She shows very early artistic skills but decides to undertake scientific studies by enrolling in the high school of her country, with applied sciences address. It is precisely here that she matures an increasingly lively interest in art, to which she initially dedicates herself occasionally and then in an increasingly constant way, developing her own defined and recognizable style that combines the young and metropolitan language of street art with the marked expressiveness of the graphic sign, borrowed from traditional engravings and lineography of the early Twentieth century. The real turning point came with the idea of ​​her first artist’s book, “Corbaccio”, inspired by Boccaccio’s work, which was selected to participate in the 2019 Biennial of the Artist’s Book of Naples and published in the exhibition catalog. With Corbaccio the characteristics of Tiziana’s style and technique emerge: the rigor of digitization mixes with the emotional power of freehand drawing. At first, therefore, free energy and strength, creative urgency and personal experiences appeared and were recorded; then, she chisels, cleans and applies backgrounds, which are flat backgrounds or patched colored elements. After that, she curated some exhibitions in her high school, during which the illustrations of two others artist’s books – “10 shades of gray” and “Animals and plants” – are exhibited. On this occasion she also presents the video installation (sensory experience) “Cosmicamente”. Art, science, literature are mixed in Tiziana’s works and revisited through the transfiguring lens of the biographical story, passing from the universal to the personal and vice versa.

Luca Curci – What is your background? What is the experience that has most influenced your work?
Tiziana Bologna –
My background is represented by all those my personal experiences that I have lived into my life, each of them characterised by different feelings, emotions and sensations. All the desires and impulses, but also those sorrow and loss, that I have felt and tasted during my young life as a teenager have strongly affected my work. We can’t absolutely live without them, otherwise we will only be inertial bodies. That’s why I am trying to express through my work my personal perception of human psychology and all the darkness that surrounds the world.

LC – What is art for you?
TB –
Art is the thin wire that connects the sky to the sea. It allows you to breath, feel, touch and enjoy the endless colours of the world we live in. It’s the best expression of eternity, freedom and beauty itself. Art gives words to our soul and Science, Physics, Math, History, Philosophy, Poetry and Religion are all parts of it.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
TB –
I always got inspired by my own experiencing life. Experience generates a mechanism that brings me to desire to touch the reality with my hands, so I can see my fantasies displayed.

LC – What does you creative process consist in?
TB –
The creative process is divided into two different phases: the rational phase and the productive one. I just live and then tell what I breath.

LC – What artistic themes are you pursuing? What is your favorite subject, if any?
TB –
The themes of my art reguard the Psyche. That’s why they deal with sorrow, loss, the need to escape from reality, but also with love, magic and harmony of the universe. My art is also inspired by human anatomy, cosmology, chemistry and biology: they materialize my thoughts.

LC – What do you think about this festival? How did it inspire you?
TB –
This festival theme is delicate and impressive at the same time. It is meant to be the expression of a reality with no boundaries, inciting my soul to express everything it feels.

LC – How are your works of art presented in our exhibition related to the theme of the festival?
TB –
My works of art express a very strong connection between Science and Art. They represent bodies which are willing to comunicate to the world. I drew bodies in various positions in order to explain how invisible the inside/outside is, how subtle the above/below is and how human being is ultimatly meant to be.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
TB –
Itsliquid group’s idea is very original, it differs from many artistic associations, as a bright colour in the middle of a black stain.

LC – What do you think about our services?
TB –
Itsliquid group team and staff are friendly, helpful and professional.

LC – Do you think that Itsliquid group could represent an opportunity for artists?
TB –
Itsliquid group offers a great opportunity to artists, allowing them to become more visible in the contemporary world of art.
