The interest of Michela Curti is about the stratification of reality and languages which describe it, about the many different perceptions and points of view on the same referent: they overlap one on the other in the moment when we meet another person.

She is interested in how can we interact with the external world as individuals. She doesn’t believe that there’s a only one right way to do it. We need to find a personal way to deal with it in order to live our life.

“This is where, I think, language came from. I mean, it came from our desire to transcend our isolation and have some sort of connection with one another. […] And yet, you know, when we communicate with one another and we feel that we have connected – and we think we’re understood, I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion… and that feeling may be transient, but I think it’s what we live for.” (Richard Linklater, Waking life, 2001)

Michela Curti
Artist / Researcher

Michela Curti (b. 1993 in Brescia, Italy) is a visual artist and photographer based in Turin.

Her research often involves the time and the process of change, she expresses through small oscillations between images, words and actions. She cares about the practice of learning and “taking care,” and she constantly creates and searches for connections between things.

She has always been interested in how human interactions can vary and evolve, and in the many different languages (both verbal and non-verbal) which we use to communicate. Her work with images comes from there. She also works as art mediator in contemporary art spaces and museums.

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication
    Void
    International
    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia
    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
