    • I work on the limits, the tensions and the fragilities of the contemporary society. It concerns me the point or the moment where elements, individuals or situations confront to each other and they have to deal what is the position to take to be in harmony, or emphasize the friction between them. It is in this point where fragility becomes a beautiful force to itself to create a new scope for the achievement. Inside these fissures I find the main ideas of my work. I take these frictions carefully and thought about them from distance, where the vulnerability is susceptible of being penetrated and transformed in powerful by the form of an artpiece. I concentrate on the material or the substance in its natural state; the reflex in the raw, still not treated or purified material, and I transmute it into a creative form. The main idea of my work is to show these concepts as strong qualities which transform the differences or resistances inside these relations into skills of growing in one and in the collective knowledge. For what I look essentially is to transform the invisible thing; the emotions, the thoughts, the feelings and the vibrations into symbols, objects, sounds and images or a composition of them.

    • Joanneke Meester
    • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    • "According to my own system and logic, I am interested in identifying an emotional and spiritual world". Mixed media artist ( installations, collages, video, public space projects ) Joanneke Meester (NL,1966) collaborating for ten years in an artist collective, which dedicated itself primarily to realising large-scale works in the public space. Since 2002 Joanneke Meester focuses on the development of personal, autonomous work. She studied at the Fine Art Academy and the Sandberg Institute ( masters of the Gerrit Rietveld Art Academy ) in Amsterdam. Her works are fragments, literally cut outs, of her thoughts, emotions, inspirations and actions with regards to the world she lives in. In 2004 she gained international fame with a pistol she made with her own skin. Her previous installations, sculptures and videos are the result of research into the subcutaneous violence, present in every human being. In her recent works she still addresses existential issues regarding violence, identity, daily life and imagination. Her new text-based works are appropriated from existing fragments of historical correspondence. The remains of the titles of the works are cut out of several materials, such as textile, cardboard, plastic, canvas, paper, etc. As the remains of derivative words there is a connection with language. This "new" created abstract world is more detached from the communication in the form we know it. So there is more space for the imagination and it creates a language with less limitations. Joanneke Meester produces works are presented in public space and at different international art institutions, galleries and museums including the Centre Pompidou, Moca Shanghai, Hara Tokyo. Her video works are included in the traveling collection of the Viva collections on tour.

    • Bellinzona, Switzerland
    • Pier Giorgio De Pinto is a transdisciplinary artist, a performer, a curator, a theorist and a media trainer. De Pinto strongly uses new media as a “thinking medium” in which involves the audience, creating performative experiences and immersive environments. His projects usually involve others – musicians, choreographers and artists – from different cultural backgrounds, styles and identity genres. These collaborations enable De Pinto to undertake new and radical experimental projects, capable of stimulating discussion about stereotypes and prejudices, asking awkward questions in the areas of culture, politics and religion.

    • My work explores the space of video installation through the use of large scale projections, creating immersive environments that trigger an experiential relationship between the viewer and the piece. It is and investigation of various aspects of vision, the desire of looking, and intimacy as the most powerful human connector, raising some of its beauties and contradictions. We are all voyeurs at some point. At least I know I am. I have always been inclined to observe the intimacy of others, if what we call intimacy can be susceptible to being eyed. I believe intimacy is something that - when it exists and occurs - must be apprehensible, and so, I am on the trail. Intimacy is not linked to individualism but to a fold where I can relate to myself as well as to others. It is because sight is considered to “maintain the most emphatic exteriority of its object”, as Cathryn Vasseleu points out, that it becomes enormously motivating and relevant to explore those moments and faults where it crosses the surface and partakes of the perceived subject. These ideas drove me to consider how might we study intimacy through the act of looking. For instance, in the video installation As Inside as the Eye can See, two eyes look at each other intently all the while moving closer and closer. The desire of “seeing” the “other”, of entering her space and trying to understand, or even share, the other person’s intimacy through the gaze turns out to be an effort in vain because without distance we cannot see. We find ourselves in a paradox: so close but unable to see more than a blurred image. The gaze becomes now more of a haptic sense, perceiving the other not through the sight but through the rubbing of the eyelashes. The resulting image embodies a physical eye that beats, touches and relates intimately.

    • Biljana Bosnjakovic
    • Verona, Italy
    • Born in Uzice, Serbia, in 1970, Biljana Bosnjakovic moved to Rome in 1992 and has lived and worked in Verona since 2002. An extremely versatile artist, Biljana continuously experiments with a variety of techniques to express her concerns and torments and without ever dwelling on a single medium. She moves from photography to performance art, from sculpture to video art, where she coordinates, curates and creates every single achievement. Among the many different mediums that Biljana uses, the video camera is one that is most suitable for her, without the use of tripods or other supports and it becomes almost like an extension of her body. Despite this, the term video artist is too restrictive to Biljana, as her videos are just the starting points of a larger creative process. Her innovative approach is to use and insert fragments of motion pictures into different structures. One example of this original idea is a LED screen projection within a traditional framework, where the artist has challenged the idea of static immobility, creating real tableaux vivants. In other cases, the process was the opposite, where she left the dynamism of video and returned to the "frozen moment" of photography, developing a single video frame through professional printing. In the development of her works, Biljana often focuses attention on her own body and has created multimedia installations and live performances that interact with the audience. These include: - Video "Mutation," screened in 2007 at the Aula Magna of the University of Verona, - Video "Thus Spoke Palladio" commissioned in 2008 with the support of CISA Andrea Palladio from Vicenza, - Video installation "Zodiac for Stockhausen" in 2009, with the Verona Philharmonic Orchestra at the Camploy Theatre in Verona, - Solo performance "The Vitruvian Woman" in 2009, at Okidoki Art Gallery in Berlin, - Theatrical performance "Prekid" at Verona Art Fair 2010 for the Angel Art Gallery (Milan) and the Cell63 Art Gallery (Berlin). - Photo exhibition The Reflex, at Saman Art Gallery, Rome 2011, - Multimedia installation "Japon, mon amour", at Palazzo Birolli, Verona 2011. - Participation in the project "Feminism in the art of women", for Livinggallery Lab, Poland 2012. - Performance "Woman" at ACUD Theatre in Berlin, as a part of the MPA-B (Month of Performance Art Berlin) in 2012. The next steps of her research are recently shifting to the observation of the influence of weather and natural elements on her art, which is executed and performed in open spaces. What she intends to do is to allow the environment to intervene on every step of the evolution of her works. It is as though she feels the need to fuse and merge with Nature, in an effort to return to - as well as the search for - the Self. Jannifer Karch Verzé
