Costanza Givone  / Coordenação artística

Since 2007 my research has focused on the relationship body/object, body/matter and on the development of transdisciplinary practices of contamination between different areas of knowledge, capable of involving different audiences throughout the creation process. I create highly visual performative works, manifestations of long-term research paths.

Working, failing and sharing practices has been the best way to learn. I have never been interested in rigid formulas and techniques. I built my training through formal (academic) and informal (seminars, workshop, work experiences) education, always keeping alive the ability to create connections and flow through categories.

In my work I reflect on the contradictions of contemporary society, focusing on the role of women and the relationship with the environment.

In my work, I seek to find new ways of creating and collaborating, more sustainable and capable of proposing alternatives to the capitalist production system. I believe in the power of art to foment an underground revolution, made of concrete actions, perhaps slow, but capable of penetrating and leaving marks on civil society.
