Anna descriptive Curriculum
I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, Italy, with a specialization in Graphic Arts (etching). My artistic path departs from drawing and bi-dimensional representation and, through the etching of different materials like wooden, stone and metal printing plates, brought me to experimentation and manipulation. In the last few years I approached Figure Theater especially Shadow Theater. The exigency to bring life to my signs led me to distance my drawings from the paper and bring them to a different dimension – the set on stage, trying to explore and use the dynamism of movements as the key element to build a visual and narrative composition. Shadow Theater brought my artistic experience to a whole new level, in which I found myself playing with materials to build "objects" that I then try to bring to life on stage. This playful and manual dimension of artistic research has been the source of a renewed artistic excitement, which is what brings wishing to participate to the PIP 2015.
