    • I am a multidisciplinary artist, who believes the most important thing being an artist is to have freedom of thinking. When I work, I try to understand the way, how we, the humans, perceive the world. How we interact with our surrounding environment. Based on this, my last works have been realized on way, representing the idea on many layers, arranged in multiple levels; from the shallow to the deepest, and which can be understood in many different ways.

    • Breve biografia di “Ebro” Andrea Barbarossa, in arte “Ebro”, nasce a Ginevra nel Luglio del 1967. Più tardi, con la famiglia, torna a Fabriano dove dal 1982 frequenta l’ Istituto Statale d’ Arte sezione della grafica e della fotografia. Irrequieto, prolifico e insoddisfatto del clima culturale che lo circonda, dopo gli obblighi di leva si trasferisce a Milano dove ben presto entra nel vivo del dibattito sociale e artistico. Nel 1991, incoraggiato dal Critico Nicola Tedesco e dall’ Architetto Claudio Clementi decide di “farsi avanti” alla grande critica presentando il proprio lavoro. Conosce così molti Maestri dell’ Arte Italiana con i quali stringe legami di amicizia e di collaborazione creativa. Nello stesso anno inizia ad approfondire la propria esperienza professionale collaborando con alcune agenzie di grafica pubblicitaria e con prestigiosi studi di designer e di architettura tra i quali lo Studio Architetti Associati Farnese di Milano. Alla fine del 1991 entra a far parte del V.I.E. (Venture Innocent Exil) Multiart dove sempre più profonda è la contaminazione con le realtà creative legate al mondo della comunicazione multimediale che lo proiettano verso opere sempre più legate all’ uso, spesso sperimentale, delle nuove tecnologie. Nel 1992 lavora alla realizzazione della rivista d’ Arte e Cultura “Il cappello sulla folla” di cui diventa responsabile artistico. Arricchito dalle grandi esperienze multimediali milanesi e romane, impegnato a collaborare con realtà sempre più vicine alla video arte, sposta la sua attenzione, per un periodo, verso altre esperienze creative e nel 1994 dopo una breve collaborazione con la Rassegna Nazionale Teatro della Scuola di Serra S. Quirico si avvicina alle realtà teatrali, molto distanti dalle esperienze maturate negli ambienti multimediali, Infatti il teatro, non lo allontana dalle produzioni video e nel 1996 per l’ Aquili Audiovisivi di Roma crea e dirige la realizzazione di spot televisivi indirizzati al mercato turistico russo e video-promo per il mercato nazionale. Innumerevoli le presenze di Ebro dal 1991 al 1999 nel panorama dell’ Arte con mostre di sculture ed istallazioni multimediali e performance: da “Il Campo dell’ Arte”- Festival dei due Mondi di Spoleto a “Urbano Effimero” - San Remo, da “L’ ira di Miriam”-Cetona a “Combines”- Milano. Alla fine del 1999 tornato a Fabriano decide di riprovare con il teatro e proprio sul palco del Teatro Gentile matura l’esperienza tecnica necessaria per tessere una rete di collaborazioni con le principali realtà nazionali legate al teatro e alla musica. Nel 2001 costituisce la Media & Media e nel 2005 l’ Area Service traghettando Ebro nel settore degli allestimenti audio, video e luci. Da allora ha partecipato alla realizzazione tecnica di molti allestimenti e tournèe, al fianco dei più grandi e rappresentativi artisti del panorama teatrale e musicale, per le maggiori produzioni tra le quali: Compagnia della Rancia, Ballandi Entertainment, Fox&Gold, Fidia Film e Il Sistina. Molte altre le collaborazioni tecniche che lo hanno visto sui palchi di diversi teatri italiani con i maggiori spettacoli prodotti e con i grandi del panorama illuminotecnico nazionale. Numerosi i contributi tecnici e creativi condivisi con alcuni Maestri contemporanei del calibro dei M° Mimmo e Armando Cattarinich e del M° Mario Sasso e altrettanto numerosi sono gli spettacoli e gli eventi le cui luci portano la firma di Andrea Barbarossa. Le esperienze maturate nei circuiti multimediali, prima, e negli ambiti legati all’ uso creativo della luce, poi, hanno sviluppato, nella ricerca artistica di Ebro, la creazione di opere dove la componente video è sempre più predominante tanto da produrre realizzazioni esclusivamente legate alla video arte. Considerato dalla Critica internazionale uno dei protagonisti emergenti dell’ Arte contemporanea, Ebro, con le sue Opere video, negli ultimi anni ha raggiunto traguardi prestigiosi tanto che i più importati eventi d’Arte e gallerie internazionali hanno ospitato le sue Opere con riconoscimenti e premi. Presenze recenti: - New York City - Producing Censoship Celeste Prize 2011 - Milano - Producing Censoship – Celeste Prize 2011 - Lecce - AMG Video Gallery 2011 – 2012 - Venezia (Nappe Arsenale)– 6th Arte Laguna Prize 2012 - ("Exil [o-nì-ri-co]"di Ebro, Opera finalista) - Roma (Filmstudio) – ViDay 2012 rassegna di Videoarte e del Cortometraggio - Roma (Galleria M4- Macro) – Inquinati 2012 - Roma (Spazio Casa d’ Aste Bloomsbury Auctions – Palazzo Odescalchi ) – 1 Art day 2012 - Venezia - Art Night Venezia 2012 Telecom Futur Centre - Arte Laguna Prize 2012 - Civitanova alta – Ebro for Giò Rondas Popsophia 2012 - New York City - Art Takes Times Square 2012 www.andreaebrobarbarossa.net www.areaservice.org

    • My work has a social and political commitment context through a critical and ironic dialogue. It is based on an active participation, a continuous process of learning, research and of transdisciplinary creation both collective and individual. It reflects around geographical and cultural borders, limitations, barriers, behavior, etc. Questioning the limits of the body –as a border- social prejudice and the difficulties that it entails in human relationships. I also work around the figure of the woman artist, heroin and migrant in transit, social violence and the constant struggle to survive in a hostile environment. On how the female image became powerful within the erotic and the market as a reflection on how cultural identities are constructed through certain stereotypes and patterns of popular mythologies.

    • PAINTING For the past Five years, I've been painting masks and faces. I'm very attracted to ceremonial, magico-religious objects, such as idols, effigies, and fetishes. What fascinates me is the visceral and spiritual power, the intensity that emanates from these objects. I like images that stop you in your tracks, that inspire fear, with menacing or ecstatic looks on their faces. In my paintings, I explore the relationship between the face and the mask. I am obsessed with the human face, which--along with the hands--is the most responsive and eloquent part of the human body. The face is the most individual aspect of a human being. What does the face or the mask reveal or conceal? The Poet Rilke said: "There's many people in the world, but there's still more faces, for each one of us has many." I love to observe the endless variety and diversity of human faces, what each one of us holds inside himself. I look for the unguarded moment in people's facial expressions, the contortions of the human mask, the mystery of another human being. When I paint, I know that I am going to paint a face, but I have not the slightest idea of the image that is becoming visible before my eyes. Chance is crucial to my work. The image undergoes a series of transformations until one image asserts itself above the others. Art for me is an act of discovery, and the challenge of finding the next step in my struggle to master the medium. PHOTOGRAPHY For the past twenty years, I've been photographing sections of the torn and weather beaten commercial posters that I find on walls and construction sites in downtown Manhattan. I take close-ups and extreme close-ups of these posters and take these details out of their original context, blowing them up, to create new works that I have printed in pigmented inks, on archival, one-hundred-percent cotton rag paper. "Sentenat scopes out the walls and construction fences of SoHo, the Bowery, and the East Village, like a rare bird watcher, looking for the perfect detail that exists amidst the street's messy vitality. The results look like nothing so much as carefully conceived graphic masterworks: out of a hastily painted building sign comes the subtle loops of Japanese calligraphy; seen from close view, a menswear ad looks like the work of conceptual artist John Baldessari." "Like so many New Yorkers before him, Sentenat has learned the art of finding beauty in unlikely places. 'Rusty garbage containers, graffiti, weathered and buckled posters--these things are inspirational,' he concludes." Andrea Codrington I. D. Magazine The International Design Magazine November, 1996

    • 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.

    • 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

    • My artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues, often referencing what surrounds me or draws my attention. The medium I use is photography and I develop my projects using digital techniques. The image is the centre of my work. It is not, however, an icon. It is rather a depiction that is constantly filtered through my own experience and personal view of the world, and repeatedly called into question as a material and emotional entity, as both presence and memory. Each project primarily consists of a range of different images that are grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production, new areas of interest arise and lead me to my next body of work. My projects reflect a concern with the progressive construction of social reality by the media, discernible not only in the increasing importance of the image, but also in the gradual incorporation of the “simulated world” into different realms of daily life, such as politics and culture. The critical realism of my work is generated from these reflections and I achieve it by transforming them into metaphors. I make images that present views of contemporary life exclusive to the present moment; the result of modern, social and global concerns. My interest here focuses on the average human being’s experience and interaction with power in everyday life. I strive to create a visual manifestation of an internal resistance against these restraints, and the resulting work forms a muted acknowledgement of its existence.

    • In her work, Napier explores territories and domains such as street spaces and the sites of former communities, through surveillance, documentation, and performances set in everyday life. Her interest lies in the ways that sociological systems are revealed through patterns of behavior, documented through video, photography, and sound. Audience participation is essential to realize many of these projects, which exist only momentarily as shared transitory experience. Events are constructed to examine both the past and present history of these sites, and to finally leave participants with heightened awareness of themselves and others in the range of spaces that we inhabit.
