" I could go Anywhere"
Federica Perazzoli & Daniele Innamorato
Marco di Castri (Milan 1952) has been working as a musician with the Dedalus group since 1973. His interest in photography and cinema combined with a particular attention to the world of contemporary art led him, starting from 1982, to deepen the use of live cinema techniques in the artistic field. His experience developed together with Gianfranco Barberi in the Cataloga project, a publishing house specializing in documentaries on artists, exhibitions and museums that created with the Center G. Pompidou, in 1988, the first artist's video catalog in Europe (Tinguely par Jean Tinguely).
Gianfranco Barberi (Frossasco 1944) from 1969 to 1978 lives and works in Rome as a screenwriter for cinema and television. The meeting with Mario Bava starts a real partnership. In 1984, together with Marco di Castri, he founded the Cataloga production company with which, over the course of a decade, he made numerous documentaries on some of the greatest contemporary artists.
Federica Perazzoli (was born in 1966) is a swiss artist,currently living and working in Milan. She works using textures and fabrics to create environmental installations capable of transforming the domestic space itself in a work of art. He also experiments with large-scale painting, created specifically to provide continuity between different languages and narratives, placing itself at the basis of the art / life relationship. She creates free and magical enchanted Forest.
Quoting the curator Giorgio Verzotti “The landscapes, defined with great skill on oversized canvases ––gigantic trees, tall palms on versicoloured backgrounds –– give back the long time of meditation, also symbolized by the small female figures that sometimes inhabit these imaginative places as fable presences. From mainstream infotainment, the artist filters suggestions she eventually transforms in suspended, almost metaphysical, but above all silent or with a very muffled sound, scenes.
She never stops searching for “something else” from what’s already there, and that to a prepacked dream she prefers the possibility of an authentic one, to share with her reader.
