ABOUT

Wandering mixed media anti-artist, free from any aesthetic or moralizing concerns, tries to find simply the means to express her rebellion by undermining the idea of an elitist, dogmatic, haughtily separated from real life art, and by averting the fast flow of time. For MAGDA, instead, art must mingle with life, without any auras of superiority, becoming itself building material and therefore evidences of lives lived.
In this way fragments of everyday life turn into art: it is the time – not vanished, but preserved and held in a form of “random stuff” collection– that becomes a masterwork. In contact with artists, critics and art lovers – engaged in deciphering her works – she provides clues and ambiguous, skeptical and ironic suggestions. MAGDA raises doubts about everything and takes nothing for serious, firstly towards art, that she aims to desecrate rather than destroy.

Poet of recycling:

by getting rid of the traditional pictorial means, she resorts to unclassifiable waste materials, which have no more purposes to be and which are popular, humble and obsolete relics. Paper, cardboard, labels, mirrors, used transport tickets, stones, postcards, fabrics, envelopes, boxes, covers, old newspapers, magazines, hair brushes without bristles, typographic scraps and much more. These are recovered from everyday life and collected from constant visits to junk dealers and, after being accumulated, carefully selected and harmoniously assembled, are converted in support, on which you can work with glues, colors, pencils, charcoals and oil pastels, as well as in subject of the work itself.

By accepting

the precariousness of life and rejecting the idea of an existence, which is pre-established into sterile stages - codified by a society, that forces the individual to obey realities, that incline his freedoms and that lead him to a series of forced actions - MAGDA (an all-encompassing term) collects and preserves everything that comes along her way, maybe as a defense mechanism against this constant insecurity. So fragments of paper and common objects, that perhaps you have always seen but not really looked at, meet and recompose themselves, flowing into one, without loosing anyway their own peculiarities, demonstrating how every single existence is a unrevealed carrier of surprises and possible spells.

Each

fragment evokes gestures, encounters, voices and fantasies. Continuously searching for their elusive, familiar but unknown harmony, she maneuvers their sometimes improvised, sometimes contemplated arrangements with slow and silent commands. Artistic freedom and no prejudice towards expressive forms become for her a mean to make you rethink the interaction over time among the single elements and their relationship with a hidden existing / not existing presence.
