A few days ago I had the chance to stay in Venezia for four hours. It was the first time in my life, despite living in Italy and being almost forty. I’ve been waiting for this so long that I decided to shoot a video to remember this experience.
I tried to replicate the approach of the ancient travellers, meaning that I didn’t use a map and I simply walked around losing myself in the beautiful narrow alleys of the city, trying to capture the life of the natives and trying to avoid the tourist areas as much as possible. I must say that the experience was pure gold. Venezia is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities on earth, a place you’ll remember forever.

“The first time I got dressed elegantly was for the wedding of my parents when I was 7 years old. I was very touched by the party, the champagne, the outfits, the mood… I had been looking forward to enjoying it as well ! In love with an angel, tonight is a celebration of what we all appreciate the most in the world : free love. This feeling I do my best to feed all the time motivated me to create a collection around the theme of a wedding. More comfortable in the creation and technically, this eleventh collection is an interpretation of how I see my witnesses. I wish you all a good time.
We’re in heaven,

Fondazione Prada presents the exhibition “Uneasy Dancer”, a comprehensive survey of work by Betye Saar (Los Angeles, 1926). This exhibition, hosted at the Nord Gallery, opens to the public from 15 September 2016 through 8 January 2017. Curated by Elvira Dyangani Ose, “Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer” is the first exhibition of the American artist in Italy, and brings together over 80 works including installations, assemblages, collages and sculptures produced between 1966 and 2016.
“Uneasy Dancer” is an expression Betye Saar has used to define both herself and her artistic practice. In her own words, “my work moves in a creative spiral with the concepts of passage, crossroads, death and rebirth, along with the underlying elements of race and gender.” This process implies “a stream of consciousness” that explores the ritualized mysticism present in recovering personal stories and iconographies from everyday objects and images. Several key elements lie at the center of her artistic practice: an interest in the metaphysical, the representation of feminine memory, and African-American identity which, in her work, takes on takes on evocative and unusual forms. As Saar has said about her work, “It was really about evolution rather than revolution, about evolving the consciousness in another way and seeing black people as human beings instead of the caricatures or the derogatory images.”
