Sabrina Muzi

 

Since many years I have been interesting in Sabrina Muzi's artistic practice. For her art has always had and still has a strong regenerative and energetic power. Working with many media as photograph, video, installation, drawing, performance, etc. she has focusing her art on cultural and social rituals and tradition, body, power, relation woman/man and relation nature/human being. Sabrina Muzi invites us to rethink our role as human beings and what has been created by us in terms of ideologies of thought, traditions, customs, laws, behavior ... they are structures that are not immutable or dates once and for all . They are structures created by us therefore liable to be changed, canceled, respected ...

For this website I have choosen the photographic series Vanitas as a part of the project Mutatio corporis (2013) re-calling in the cutting and posture the classical portraiture but giving centrality to artichokes, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus, etc. with which the artist has adorned herself as they are precious jewelry, sign of distinction and power in a society as the contemporary one strongly unequal also in the access to food (according to recent FAO estimates the people who suffer from hunger in the world are more than 900 million). The preciousness of the gifts of nature is also present in the installation and photographic series Rebus (2011) recalling in the composition the genre of still life. In reality, on a closer inspection you can see that the fruits and vegetables are "different" from what we are used to see: from apples come out carrots, from potatoes rose thorns, from oranges peas ... They remember a strange genetic experiment or just a hallucination, restlessness and beauty of an unreality that fascinates and surprises us leaving us breathless. But that beauty and harmony are fragile and caduceus and the act of the artist just serves to preserve and protect them.
