Artist Statement:

I am a visual and performance artist originally from Italy, living and working in London for the last thirteen years. I work in a multi-disciplinary way including the use of video, drawing and performance/live art. I am interested in the ideas around ‘place’, the experience of theatricality in relation to physical vulnerability and becoming and the link between visual art and movement. Movement has always been a constant point in my work, an aspect that has grown with time, since my art education. I explore this both solo and collaboratively, as well as devising and facilitating workshops on visual art and performance. I have trained extensively in both areas. I have also trained in Butoh, in Italy, England and Japan, with Ko Murobushi, Tatsura Kan, Akiko Motofuji, Tadashi Endo, amongst others. I have shown, researched and performed work both nationally and internationally; as well as in England and Italy, in Singapore, Canada, India, Finland, Japan and Croatia. One of my recent project, showed in Italy (summer 2003), was ‘Stalks’ a two channels video installation, on tobacco cultivation and agricultural performance,. Last September in Momjan (Croatia), I performed ‘Outskirt’ with a video installation, a work about geographical and cultural boundaries, in which myself and a collaborator involved the people from the village. Last summer I performed a solo improvisation on the Tiber embankment in Rome, in the context of a performance-poetry event. Last October and November, over two weeks I started developing a live art project about tinnitus, in collaboration with electroacustic composer Roger Goula from Barcelona and performed it at Beaconsfield’s, in London.
Recently, I have been selected by the panel at the artist led Chisenhale Dance Space for the ‘Artists Program 2005’ to develop a research project on Tarantulism, that will be presented there in the coming spring.
