IDENTITY, OPPORTUNITY

BIO AND RESEARCH


Independent and multi-faceted artist. Photographer, director and performer, born in 1978 in Liguria, Italy, the place where she returned to live in 2017 after a seven years experience in Berlin, cornerstone of her spiritual, artistic and evolutionary research. She begins her photo and video self-shooting artistic path in 2005, as a “Listening” self-therapy connected to the present moment, the “here and now” and invisible energies. Her pictures and video-art works travel across the globe through exhibits and screenings, festivals, conferences, fairs and competitions, earning honorable mentions, plaques and jury awards. Important printed features, such as “Vogue Italy”, “Il Fotografo” Italian photographic magazine, “La Repubblica” national newspaper. The “Human Alienation” project is currently leased for educational purposes to the Brown University of Providence, U.S.A, and in the permanent collection of the CAM contemporary art museum of Naples, Italy.

"I focus on the awakening of consciousness through photography and videoart". I try to give shape to what socio-cultural manipulation has made unrecognizable: the human being. When I take pictures of myself I can’t see myself, I perceive myself as an energy flow together with what’s around me. I’ve never chosen my locations, rather they’ve chosen me. My research is not representation but presence, attention inside my body and concentration on the here and now where extraneous thoughts surrender and quit having any power. I separate myself from the mind, logic, calculation, rationality, from method and a linear timeline, in order to meet myself, to my true/quantic moment in which any shape or color that surrounds me is no longer physical but becomes energetic and symbolic. Together we move towards the possibility of reaching the condition of Presence. In such “present” it’s possible for me to realize that I’m not “She who thinks”, since I can observe it. If I can witness it, it means that I’m not that – And from here my awakening beyond body and mind begins. The abeyance of consciousness begins. It’s a transcendental exploration process, guided by the right side of the brain, home of our instinct, perception, intuition and emotional communication which allows to make the invisible visible inside my photographic rectangle. My intent is to stimulate humankind to a path of interior access and exploration towards themselves, thus towards the universe, through frequencies, ultra-sensorial vibrations and the cosmos of observation. It’s a path that goes beyond photographic technique and beyond the physical eye. It can’t be analyzed nor identified, because presence is a state which can’t be grasped with the mind or understood. The interior space becomes the place of perception, which I define as the “Inner Room”. Here I can freely offer myself without duality. Without fear. Without judgement.
