Luca Curci – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our festival.     Helmut Eding – I present light art in form of balls of different sizes. The light balls are illuminated from the inside. The motives are from pop art to organic motifs.

L.C. – We were attracted by your last artistic production, have the artworks presented been created for Border festival or as a part of pre-existent works?
H.E. – No, they haven`t been produced for the festival fragmented identities , the artworks were pre-existent.

L.C. – When did you start practicing art and why?
H.E. – I am doing the light arts for 4 years, but actually I am a painter for more than 30 years, with paintings on canvas with all kind of motifs and sizes. For me, art is essential and a complementation of the human existence, it is a tool of communication and making inspiration visible.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
H.E. – In my work I transform my confrontation with nature and landscape with surrealism. My inspiration comes from the attempt to look behind the wall of reality.

L.C. – What’s the art tip you usually receive? Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
H.E. – No, I produce pictures through my own inspiration and ideas. So far I didn´t not get my inspiration from visitors.

 L.C. – What art themes do you pursue? What are your preferred subjects if any?            H.E. – I don´t have preferred subjects. I like surrealism, I am flexible. My ideas depends on emotions, questions and thoughts, which I try to transform in light and colors or my canvas paintings.

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Platform? Do you think It’s LIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
H.E. – Actually yes, but unfortunately I didn’t have the possibility to have an exchange with other artists and curators. I was disappointed after visiting the exhibition, only few guests were there. Maybe it needs to be promoted.

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more


INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
