Piovesan’s philosophy

Francesca Piovesan, showing her art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” 

“In my art the skin is a natural boundary and sensitive surface”.

Venetian artist Francesca Piovesan’s philosophy in five questions interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

I use my body through a series of actions and relationships with space or with objects. Nowadays my focus is on the skin as a natural boundary and especially as sensitive surface. There is a parallelism between the skin and the photography that I use for work, they are both sensitive surfaces.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

Usually I use self-timer, sometimes I expose the pictures in book form or installation.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

To continue my research.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

For several reasons I admire the work of Markus Schinwald and Wolfgang Tillmans.

What books do you read?

Now I’m reading an essay by an anthropologist about the concept of space.

Any Animals

A. is driven by the overwhelming impulse to fuse himself with the book and to become as one with it. He cuts his fingertips. A. is no self-destructive man but rather he is making his touch hypersensitive, to multiply the pleasure of contact. A real sexual intercourse of his fingers and the book pages: the paper cuts through the flesh and the bodily fluids penetrate the paper. In the end the result will be a mutated A. hybridized: half man and half animal or maybe completely animal.
