My name is Giuseppina, I see myself as being a perpetual event.
My work has no center: it feeds on transformation. I don’t care which media I use: I rather care about their embodying a request.
Uncertainty is my field. I focus on events, gestations, germinations, chances. I study the constantly changing order of life, identities, meanings: from the omnipresence of life and coincidence to the mystery of individuals.
The freshness of the event is my time: from time of sequence to time of simultaneousness where each repetition is a process of knowledge, rumination on reality.
My goal as an artist is to welcome complexity not as mere holism, but to perceive and weave contradictions, different levels of reality, so they can echo in harmony. My aim is to reach, through my practice, an horizontal glance, in between things, among us, “To walk two roads at the same time”.
I take care of the process and I don’t force events, I go with them. This way, my works are born in my arms and in the arms of people close to me.
A cardboard box is leaning against the wall: it has the appropriate measures to contain my body and the packaging and design of IKEA products. The article is Giuseppina.
The box, vibrating, emits sounds thanks to a vibrating speaker inside. The widespread audio track is obtained from a recording of Google Translate.
“Giuseppina” (my name) is taken by Google Translate female voices in different languages available in audio playback (Chinese, French, English, Spanish, Korean, Finnish, etc).
GIUSEPPINÄ is a self-portrait and / or the overlapping of the “Giuseppina” possible identities. Continue reading “GIUSEPPINÄ (self-portrait), 2017”
Becoming Eve, the non-separated, because not generated through a union, the woman with no navel. It’s an attempt to fill up the scar, the cut caused by separation from the mother. While chronological time marks the movements, the number appears in decimal figures and gradually grows in its unsuccessful attempt to reach number 1.

A column made of braids in concentric circles. There’s a man inside, who is loosening the braids one by one, singing a mantra inspired by Cosmic Background Radiation. He will vanish inside it. Back to Chaos. Continue reading “THE EVENT, 2016”
All You Feed is Love, Maybe is a living work in perpetual transformation.
rhythmic, apparent repetitions reveal fragile suspended micro-worlds. Bacterial colonies – organized by their own rules, in constant chromatic and morphologic change – are arranged to compose a quasi-crystal, so- called because of its quasi-periodic atomic structure, a redundancy of relations where time is a basic component, and one may as well wait for everything to go as it will.
we can provide the intent: to observe, as that is where the transformation begins Continue reading “All you feed is love, maybe, 2015”
What can you see from your window?
There are as many stories as there are windows on the world: every person has their own window, a space which from the inside opens out towards the outside, offering its own unique and personal perspective on the world and its own landscape.
Panorama is a sound installation that was designed specifically for San Gimignano’s Nottilucente festival in 2014.
For a week I interviewed the people I met (tourists as well as the inhabitants of San Gimignano) and asked them to respond in their own language to the question ‘“What can you see from your window?”and I then produced a single audio track with the various response I had collected. Panorama was played over a stereo system that was set up on the last floor of the Torre Grossa civic museum, next to a large window offering a view of the Tuscan landscape below it.
By listening to others, people can identify with them as they access and share their special landscape. Continue reading “Panorama, 2014”
every Petri dish is a stop, “another” period of time: that it took me to travel along the stops on the map of Milan’s red underground line everyday life mapped out by pre-established routes that are apparently linear Continue reading “Line 1, 2014”
