Interview: Tiziana Mucchiani
Luca Curci talks with Tiziana Mucchiani during Venice International Art Fair 2020, at Palazzo Albrizzi Capello.

Tiziana Mucchiani Farah’s journey starts from her hometown Como in Italy, where her formative years took in the culture and rich history of her Italian heritage. Already a polyglot, she moved away at in her early 20s in order to devote herself to language and cultural studies abroad. Tiziana thus moved from Italy to Germany where she attended linguistic studies and finally to England where she studied art and ceramics. Tiziana lived in The UK for 12 years; most of it in London with its rich artistic and creative community. She has travelled extensively, with experience of African and Gulf cultures alongside the European more classical, formal influences. She now resides in Switzerland, combining her creative work with her family and bringing up her daughter.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Tiziana Mucchiani Farah – Art for me is freedom of artistic expression. It is something that stimulates an individual’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and ideas through the senses and transform them into an image, an object, a sound or something that can be shared with others.

LC – What are you currently working on?
TMF – I’m working on a metal sculpture for an outdoor exhibition. The sculpture is the outcome of the deep reflection I had during the covid-19 lockdown. It is a tree that with its colours and shapes symbolises the naval of the world, the divine egg from which life begins. The sun, the universe. A tree with five branches to represent the five elements and senses.  It is my homage to life for what it gives us.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
TMF –
It is difficult to say where inspiration comes from, it could be from the nature or at the museum. Most of the time it comes from inside and grows gradually while one’s working.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme? 
TMF –
Not really but what all my works have in common is the freedom of movement.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
TMF –
Yes, it did.  I now find myself concentrating more on the representation of the essence of the object. It’s more about the feeling and sensation that the sculpture can give to the person that is looking or touching it.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
TMF –
“Harmony of Shapes in Green” is part of a collection called “Versatility”. The meaning of the collection is to show how the same subject’s appearance can look and feel different depending on the material or colour used… The connection to the festival theme is the fact that even though the external appearance is different, the subject is the same. Similar to us humans, staying close with the new imposed physical distance, we are still spiritually united to fight the same fight. My second sculpture, “Feelings”,  is the representation of freedom of feelings and movement of the earth in our universe.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
TMF –
I think that it is professional, has good locations, and a wide range of opportunities for many categories of artists.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
TMF –
Yes, I do. Covid-19 has changed everybody’s life and approaches to daily life.  Invisible borders, as are called, have been created within the society nevertheless, we are still trying to be close to one another. It is a difficult period for everyone. Artists, art galleries and art platforms are trying to cope with the situation by re-inventing the way to exhibit and display their art works. I think that the theme of the festival perfectly suits the current actual situation. 

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
TMF –
Yes I do, this is why I am currently in Venice.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
TMF –
I’m still enjoying it.
