Fini Francesca

I’m an Italian artist working with new media, video and performance art.
My live projects, always addressing social and political issues, are mixed with lo-fi technology, homemade interaction design devices, live audio and video. Primarily interested in video and live art, I also create artworks assembling performance art ‘relics’ or manipulating video stills. Among the Art events in which I took part in the last few years, I would mention the 2011 WRO Biennale in Poland, ADD Festival at MACRO Museum in Rome, the finals of Laguna International Art Prize in Venice, CINEMED Film Festival in Montpellier, Taormina Film Festival, Berlin Directors Lounge, IKONO TV Film Festival, FILE Electronic Language International Festival in Brazil, FONLAD Digital Art Festival, Cologne Off and Magmart Video Art Festival, which I won in 2010, 2012 and 2013. In 2012 I’ve been invited to the first “Venice International Performance Art Week”, curated by VestAndPage, featuring among the others the work of Valie Export, Jan Fabre, Yoko Ono, Boris Nieslony and Hermann Nitsch. In 2013 I won the “FONLAD Performance Art Residency” in Coimbra and was invited in Chicago for the Rapid Pulse International Art Festival. In the same year I’ve been in Santander, Spain, invited to perform for the “Gallery Week” and in London for “Modern Panic IV”. I’m now finalist at prestigious Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition 2014, organized by Georgia Tech.
