Interview: Vincenzo Trazzera
Luca Curci talks with Vincenzo Trazzera during the 16th Edition of VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.
Vicenzo Trazzera has never been a quiet boy, in the sense that he’s always had the desire to do, not to sit idly by, but to challenge himself and not stop in front of a: “Well I don’t think it can be done”. The KRASH-MO brand and project was born from the desire and need to recycle waste materials that without his intervention would be thrown away, thus increasing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, with a pinch of creativity and inventiveness the artist gives life to new works with a unique charm. In 2014 Trazzera created his first KRASH-MO, the “LIGHT BAR TABLE MOTOR”, based on an unusable car engine found by the scrap metal and a triple tempered glass shelf “KRASHATO” With this creation, shortly thereafter, in 2015, Vincenzo exhibited at the Fuorisalone in the Lambrate area in Milan, continuing to produce and design works of all kinds ranging from art to design.
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Vincenzo Trazzera – For me, art is the most intimate and personal form with which one expresses oneself without constraints or constraints.
LC – How did you come to your current artistic practice?
VT – I am a versatile artist who marks his creations based on recycling; this latest form of expression comes from the idea of using alternative waste materials, in this case, leather, as a canvas and/or base for my works, enticing, thanks to the three-dimensionality of the creation itself, to be touched by the “spectator”.
LC – What is the most challenging part of creating the artwork?
VT – Surely the most challenging part is researching the materials to use and how to get the best result on a visual and physical-conceptual level from what I managed to find and compose
LC – Do visitor suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
VT – Every comment, suggestion or criticism is always a starting point for improvement and/or reflection for an artist; in any case, one must always be objective and carefully evaluate who and how these suggestions are dispensed.
LC – How to choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or instinctive process?
VT – When I create I don’t always do it premeditated, certainly the infinite time spent staring into space is incalculable, but I often start composing my works instinctively, indulging my aesthetic taste without thinking about how and if I might like the final result
LC – What do you think of the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
VT – The exhibition is structured really well, in my opinion, with an excellent subdivision and sharing of spaces, surely the inspiration comes from the proposed location, Venice is magical and being able to exhibit there was a source of inspiration.
LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the exhibition?
VT – It’s nice to see such a varied melting pot of artists and art forms enclosed in a single exhibition; the theme of the exhibition is really important and will surely open the eyes of many people.
LC – What do you think of the ITSLIQUID platform?
VT – ITSLIQUID is definitely a beautiful and great company that gives the possibility to artists like me to participate in important exhibitions in exclusive locations boasting a large number of followers.
