UNIT 9 – Sound piece

When I first created the sculpture I was very excited about the result. What I realised while exchanging with other people about the work was that without the context there is no way to guess what they are about which is very interesting but it is not what I was aiming. I decided to give…

UNIT 9 – Lockdown production

During the lockdown of march and April, I found myself angry at the situation and frustrated as the project that I had been fantasised about since the beginning of this year, the work could not be realised as the school was close. I decided to go back to more manual work and started to do…

PPD – Worked shared on Moodle

In the context of the global pandemic, the staff of UAL Wimbledon have been really supportive and proposed some great opportunity to share some of our works. The first work that I share on Moodle is the project ‘Chez Maddalena’ in collaboration with Romina de Novellis in the moving image showcase which has been created…

UNIT 9 – Research artist inspiration

Based on my previous research about the family I look at artists that were playing with the figure and the narrative of the image by destroying it using threads of other different techniques. Lisa Kokin: works with mixed media installation, assemblage and sculpture which explore the notions of memory, history, and social commentary. She used…

UNIT 9 – Research Familly

I have been fascinated by family pictures for a long time. Family archives serve the purpose of recreating an official memory of the family. What I find interesting is that the ‘official memory’ is embedded in sociological and psychological ‘categories’ and they are a way to make a link between the small and the big…

UNIT 9 – Research embroidery

Narrative figuration movement: the movement was created in 1964/65 by GĂ©rald Gassioy-Talabot, art critic and creator of…
