Loprieno’s philosophy

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

“Islands are places of landing and hope. The first true form of coexistence is that between earth and sea”. Apulian artist Francesco Loprieno’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

The genesis of my work is related to my constant inner meditations. I take a lot of pictures after developing concepts, ideas and forms of expression. I have long been attracted by the concept of “living space”, that thing that connects us (migrant beings?) with the surrounding environment. I thought of islands, which are places of landing and hope, and I realized that the first true form of coexistence is that between earth and sea. A return to a primordial condition.

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

I generally use a very small camera, a Fujifilm X-E1. I do not like to use tools that can draw attention to myself while I’m shooting, which is just the first stage of my work. I am not an enthusiast of technique, on the contrary I like to mock and ignore it. The reality around us is always distorted. I’m farsighted and, then, I have difficulty in focusing, a flaw that defines a style, as a famous photographer (Sarah Moon) said.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

I’d like to live abroad again, but I’m not sure I can stay a lifetime away from the sea. Surely, I’m going to make a long journey in 2015, I’m working on it.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

I admire very much the photographer Silvia Camporesi’s work, I am in love with the photographer Uta Barth. My approach to photography is linked to art, then I do not exclude from the list of those I admire such artists as Urs Luthi, Merry Alpern, Sophie Calle and many others.

What books do you read?

Recently, I’ve read again “A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments” by Roland Barthes. The next book will be “UBU ROI” by Jarry, I love theatre.

Vujanovic’s philosophy

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

“Technique is in the service of idea, starting point of the work”. Montenegrin artist Jovana Vujanovic’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

The idea.

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

I prefer when the technique is in the service of idea, I do not favor any of them.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

If I rule the precise plans in the working process, which should be sincere and spontaneous, for me it would be pretty un-inspiring.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

It`s not a small number of artists, directors, musicians and writers who have set parameters which reflects on my work and which I gladly embrace, but there is nothing productive either in citing them.

What books do you read?

I read everything, if I am interested.

ph. Jovana Vujanovic, Once upond a dream, 2014, dimension 50x130 cm each (3 pieces), digital prints, combined technique
