Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Cross-media Artist / Scenographer
I’m a Cross-media Artist, Scenographer and Performer whose background is rooted in the field of performance art and new media art. My strongest interest involves, in this sense, all those revolutionary examples of performances whose aim is not presenting a conventional theatrical play. The reason why these fields of study fascinate me it’s because they give space for the merging of different kinds of artistic expressions.

The concept of the Self has been at the core of my personal reflection as human being and came directly integrated in my artistic research.
In my artistic path, I have been digging into mySelf, both as person and artist. I haven’t been willing to use conventional narrative structures and linear language. Mostly I have been using audiovisual projections and soundscapes that allowed me better than other media to translate the “subtle” dimension of the human Psyche.
In the imaginary I created, I have been often working with the bodily sign, both as live presence and remediated in video. In this way, I have been trying to transmit a specific deeper message, expressing the flow of thoughts and emotions, impulses and memories, which may not always appear to have a coherent structure or cohesion. My attempt has been to reflect all the forces, external and internal, influencing the psychic dimension of a character.

Body and Psyche have been the main pillars of my artistic productions in which the Psyche is a vibration of the Self, conscious or unconscious, translated through the Body as medium and powerful dramatic element.

My concept of “Embodied Psyche”, as a kind of subtle oxymoron of the Self, introduces the metaphor of the Body as an expression and concentration of the psychic dimension in performing arts.
