Interview: Witnesses
Luca Curci talks with Witnesses during BARCELONA CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR 2021, at Valid World Hall Gallery.

“It has always been peaceful to communicate without words. The explanation is chaos. Feelings should not always need words. True feelings come exactly when you can’t put them in words. Art is therefore a successful feeling. You can know, you can see, you can feel, but you don’t feel the urgency to explain it. Neither you can. Art is not to be questioned, but to be felt.”

Luca Curci – What is art for you?  
Witnesses –
Art has always been a part of me. A way of expressing my thoughts and emotions. It has been a great part of my life as it brings me through my happiness and silent life. Art is just another form for me to express myself and on which I can rely. 

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
W – I started drawing when I was 4. It was my first ever experience in life. I learned it both institutionally and personally. Even tho I started with colour, I gradually discovered the world and shadings of graphite. The experience that influenced my work has definitely been my life. I turned myself and opened a new opportunity for me to get out of the stereotype thought my society possesses about art and it’s form.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration? 
W –
I mostly find inspiration from the people around me. I find the beauty that every single one of us possesses in a unique way. That doesn’t matches with anyone else. The variation among us makes us so rich and authentic. That’s where I find my inspiration. 

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
W –
It’s quite an explanatory question. But if I go inside myself and ask, I probably say that being an artist is a matter of vastness. Being an artist makes you able to see the beauty of everything and of yourself. But talking about the social diagram, I think both traditional and digital artists should get more scopes from early-stage to flourish in full form.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
W –
Yes, my style changed over the years. When I started, I basically started with the colour format of art. But after almost 12 years I am now working in graphite and charcoal medium. It’s an exploration.

LC – What do I think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
W – I like the whole concept of this festival. It literally breaks the borders and makes us all together in a single platform. It gives a huge opportunity for every one of us to see each other culture and community. It inspires me in every step. 

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
W – I think it gives a better view in terms of a retrospective study. The arrangement of the artworks, the contemporary design all makes it connected with the festival’s theme. 

LC – Do I think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
W –
Undoubtedly, ITSLIQUID GROUP represents a great opportunity for artists worldwide.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us? 
W –
Yes. Your cordiality and the way in which you managed everything were great. 

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
W –
I think ITSLIQUID GROUP is a great platform for artists, especially during this time. I hope to see it growing in future and to see it creating even more opportunities for artists like us.
