Alda Gazzoni

“An investigation into what appears, into the human body, is the heart of my aesthetics. I like to search the female body, the human body, genre is a non-essential element. Before opening towards the other, each individual feels the primitive need to look inside, starting from their own shell. We engage in a complex fight to see beyond heavy lies and outside layers. My works do not try to be kind to obtain an orderly harmony at all costs. I do not pursue beauty, I do not delete errors and noise. The main subject of my vision is the feeling through the evolution of the body. As we abode the skin or break the mass understood as the means, which allows us to perceive the tactile reality, the casing which contains the spirit, we comprehend the focus of our world, before we exit self to become social universe.”

Alda has lived and worked in the United Kingdom, Germany, New Zealand and Russia. She has exhibited in major cities in Italy, such as Rome, Milan and Ferrara and is currently based in Italy.
