Luca Curci talks with Serafina Figliuzzi during ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL 2019 – CONSCIOUSNESS at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Born in Catanzaro and tehrefore a migrant, after classic studies concluded with a degree in law and an ensuring practice of the legal profession, her attention of the latter and of the community has assumed the form of artistic input. Already as a child she performed at institutions for the disabled, nursing home and places where solitude and suffering wew vividly evident, obtaining a diploma in classical dance and a specialization in jazz dance, contemporary dance and body expression which enabled her to performe at theathers public shows, competitions, workshops, on national television and at many other events as well as teaching the subject to children and adults. The Network of experiences, acquaintances and consequent human enrichment grew deeper and deeper and from this, inevitably over time it became necessary to communicate through new forms of dialogs and languages. She started studyng figurative art assidously frequenting artists and masters’s studios in Bologna with Demetrio Casile and Davide Poggi Peretti, in Venice at the studio Roberto Mazzetto and with the artist Maria Teresa Sartori. Subsequently she studied photography, always her great passion, with lessons by noteworthy masters following courses and laboratories with professionals in the fiels among whom marc de Tollenaere and Andrea Sarti. Starting with street photoghraphy and always trying to add personal elements to her work she began to return to her camera using previous artistic experiences as another communicative medium through the form of self-portrait which she wanted to be more than a personal search, instead a condemnation of social pain and suffering. Over time the impellent and unrestrainable need to share emotions, research and experimentation grew in the need to contribute to the divulging of states, fascts and situations in which each one of us can see themselves and not only. In this way the project “Cella” took form in which she deals with the state of physical detention and psychological compression of the human being, specifically, the condition of women. The project “Violenza – Perdita e Giudizio” (Violence – Loss and Judgement) originated which deals with violence against women and minors. The project “Coscienza” (Coscience) started which represents a search for the knowledge of the collective conscience and the individual put into the wide context of ANIMA MUNDI. Works arose from black and white, which acquire color and sometimes the crude of the concrete, the social and the political. Precious collaborations have started with Italian and international galleries wich are achieving different projects.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
