Italian/Swiss artist (1973)
currently nomadic in the world for her new performance that saw her walk from the caves of Matera, Italy, to the caves in Africa where Homo Sapiens survived the Ice Age. Growing up in one of the oldest cities in the world, Matera, led me to investigate Human evolution and his impact on our planet.
My works transcending the threshold between life and art , dealing with Ecofeminism, Anthropocene, rituals, human behavior. I’m drawn to the suspension and fractals. My “Suspended identities” refers to the “heterotopias” theorized by the philosopher M. Foucault.
I pushed myself searching remote African villages, where the women, condemned as witches, are segregated. I filmed Buddhist monks in an advanced treatment prison to highlight connections about human rights.
My life, as my practice, is inextricably linked to Nature and his primordial aspect.
My artwork are performance, installations, virtual reality, sculptures, videos, paintings, photographs, and interventions in public spaces.
I am the observer that becomes observed in a journey of
consciousness where I learn by unlearning.
