The 2021 edition of ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2021 represented a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers, and art professionals, and provided artists and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to present their works to an international audience of art professionals who seek to acquire, publish and encourage the best contemporary art talents. It analyzed the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzed the hidden parts of our identities and their infinite ways of expression, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the labyrinths of our consciousness. While FUTURE LANDSCAPES mainly focused on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground, and transforms surfaces in an open flow of pure ideas.

ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2021 first welcomed the artists invited to have a video presentation of their artworks. Kimberly Adamis, LA-based photographer and artist, flew to Rome to introduce us to her colorful art: she loves to explore new media, mix different techniques together, and create unexpected pieces that talk about everyone’s life trying to combine art, photography and music – her three main passions. Giulia Carini is an Italian watercolor artist who explained how her “Floating” painting, and its dreamlike atmosphere, are the perfect representation of the immensity of a woman’s personal inner sea, and in particular, of her personal story. Water, in fact, has always been present in her life, it is like a protection nest for her and she always follows its flow, its rhythm, its energy – and for this reason she decided to dedicate to the water an immersive work that captures the viewers.

Even the mysterious and somehow disturbing Ersin Bactisa’s digital work on canvas fascinated lots of visitors. “I make portraits that don’t look like you, but feel like you” is the artist’s philosophy, and it highlights the fact that they are all about the human condition – reactions, feelings, transposed under metaphorical portraits – because he wants to make ‘the bad and the ugly’ seem human in a broken and beautiful way.

Audrey Beharie-McGee as well mainly works on the feelings of human beings. She is focused on the future, as a radiant path to walk in, and it is visible in all her artworks full of colors and layers. The energy that radiates from her mixed media creations is the first characteristic of her style and also a sign of the influence that the big Masters’ models have had on her; it led her to discover areas of her artistic learning curve that she never thought would be possible. Art has always been a vocation and a way to express herself for Inbal Kristin, an Israeli multidisciplinary artist who presented the photo “Personal perspective” in our exhibition. The work is an interesting point of view on the diverse perspectives we have, each one of which incarnates a different shade of our multiple identities.

Julia Viviani, originally from Latvia, told us about her noble mission of giving all the proceeds of the sale of her works to charity, and especially to some organizations that work with children in need of medical treatment, food, and schooling. Her painting titled “Love in the city”, indeed, narrates the affection she has for her adopted city – Milan – and country – Italy – and for the people that live in it, to whom she wants to be generous.

Sean Moyano, Urim Hong and Jullien Clément couldn’t be physically present at the opening, but their works spoke for them. Sean Moyano participated with some architectural photos in which the human presence interacts with the surrounding environment: the persons portrayed follow, and at the same time break, the limitations, and edges of the spaces, making the landscape become endless and infinite by the scalability with its engagement through mundane activities. Urim Hong showed us a photographic reportage on City Soleil, a small village within the le metropolitan area, in Haiti. Here, despite the name, the life conditions are very severe, and poverty, hunger, unemployment, disease, and violence have the main role. For this reason, the photographer wanted to immortalize the hope of the children, and their insatiable desire for learning. Jullien Clément’s super detailed engravings try to get closer to Surrealism to create a graphic and figurative narration but also to delineate a parallel and fantastic world connected with our reality.

During ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2021 we presented also a great video screening program that captivated the audience with its variety and the power of the video works’ images.
