Anna Franceschini, THE DIVA WHO BECAME AN ALPHABET |, ||, ||| and some remnants
28/05/2015, 21.00 h artist talk
22-23.30 h video projection

The programme opens with the artist Anna Franceschini (Pavia, 1979), presenting the piece “THE DIVA WHO BECAME AN ALPHABET |, ||, ||| and some remnants”. In the video, shot in 16 mm and then converted to digital, an anthropomorphic typeface resembling a female face puts on an act of coy seduction, playing among the folds of different fabrics and the structural elements of Museion’s architecture.

It clearly references experimental modernist films, surrealism and animation, where inanimate objects come to life and create stories. The work embraces the idea of contamination: the fabrics that form the backdrop for the movements of the typeface/diva are those used by the designers MARIOS for their creations.

 

Curated by Frida Carazzato
