ARTWORK

Lymph

Lymph
The installation Lymph tackles the fear of contamination and the physiological origin of disgust by staging a controlled staining process on a white cotton cloth sculpturally hanging from the ceiling.

Semina Aeternitatis

Semina Aeternitatis
The performance “Semina Aeternitatis” is the first action of a project which aims at collecting memories of strangers and storing them on my own DNA. The artist's body becomes a vector connecting the past (people's memories) and the future (future readers). In this performance, the audience and myself will speculate...

Liquid Debris

Liquid Debris
The series Liquid Debris concentrates on erasure and erosion of the visual information stored in the gelatine layer of photographic film. I manipulate 8mm, 16mm and 35mm found footage using different organic and chemical processes. I cultivate sprouts and mould on 35mm film; I corrode 8mm film with my own...

Strata

Strata
Project for a handwriting performance on the disused Vajont Dam. I will use water - the original element of the dam, to intervene on the layers of time that have accumulated on the walls of the dam. Over several days, I will write on the massive wall by removing the...

Memories from the Void

Memories from the Void
3-channel audiovisual installation. What will happen to one’s own memory when the physical units used to record and store fragments of her existence will become unreadable? Will it become like a latent neuronal engram, reduced to electromagnetic waves emanating from digital relics? Flora Schwarz, the artist’s alter ego, ventures into...

Black Boxes

Black Boxes
With this performance series I am collecting memories situated in a specific context and shared by people. Those memories are then sealed in boxes until an arbitrary date, a day in the far future. What will happen to them in fifteen or twenty years? Not long ago, lovers used to...

Works on paper

Works on paper
The series Works on paper focuses on the visual aspects of abstract handwriting and on the physical and tactile properties of paper. To make it, I rely on a very essential set of tools: graphite, natural glue, ink and paper. These writings are a bare-bones manifestation of presence. They are...

Labyrinth

Labyrinth
Interactive site-specific installation. The initial darkness is filled by sounds of wind and broken by the light of the images projected on the ceiling. The walls of Labyrinth are made of big size paintings on paper, mostly black on black, which can be gradually discovered by the visitors thanks to...

Herbarium

Herbarium
These botanical tables were part of the collection of a biologist. He stored them in a folder years ago and almost forgot about them. One day, he wanted to throw away old stuff. He handed me this folder to to show me this collection. When I opened the folder, I...

Reliquiarium

Reliquiarium
The wing of a goldfinch, the encrusted cephalotorax of a spider crab, wintersweet seedcases which had been eaten by mice: limbs of animals and plants. I enclosed those mortal remains in golden frames, as it used to be done with relics of the Saints in the Catholic tradition.

Come sull’acqua | As if moving on water

Come sull’acqua | As if moving on water
Single channel video. Inspired by the watery environment of Venice, the video challenges the pure composition thought considering music and images dialoguing in a counterpoint. This initial thought allows a "four hand composition", where the musician and the visual artist are both involved in developing the poetic intent within the...

Videoloops

Videoloops
On the shelves of an independent bookstore, four monitors are transmitting four lo-fi video loops. The monitors are scattered among the hundreds of universes enclosed in the pages of the books. The rhythmical sequence of book titles is interrupted by video-distortions coming from the monitors. Each book and each video...

Geschwister

Geschwister
Single channel video. There's an internal cleavage that you can't solder nor outflank. Neither you can hide it completely, especially to yourself. It's an incurable wound, nevertheless a generative liquid oozes from it. The ambient on which walls this fracture lays vibrates like a tank immersed in water.

Im dunkl’n Wasser möchte ich ausruhen

Im dunkl’n Wasser möchte ich ausruhen
Single channel video. Are we sure one can get where one wants to by following a path on the ground? Wouldn't it be better if, for once, one soaked into silence without fear of losing form and structure?

Passaggio 1 / Rilke

Passaggio 1 / Rilke
Site-specific interactive installation. Beyond the arid virtuality and back to the dimension of wandering and walking step by step on the manifold surface of our existence: each step brings a new harmony, in the form of progress, ascent and childish discovering of the world spreading out beneath our feet. It...

glEISsENdBAHN
Single channel video. Railway track is not merely a geographic route. From one rail trade to the other, the journey is sublimated, vision and thoughts leaven, get abstract. The rhythm isn't lost, but loses its worldly nature.
