Artist Statement

As the ar tist, I have been investigating the w ay s i n the s oc i al ar t, foc us i ng on at s oc i al r eal i ty, w her e it’s inter pr eted as the pr ejudice, the disinter es t and the di s gus t tow ar ds the c om m uni c ati v e per c epti on, and their differ ent cr eative pr ocesses of the ar ti s ti c pr oduc ti on: pai nti ngs , di gi tal ar t, photogr aphy and videoar t. In this r espect, the ques ti on of ar t, fr om the s oc i al and c ul tur al . It m ay ther efor e be concluded that the question fr om m ultip l e di ffer ent angl es i s that w e hav e fai l ed to c om e up w i th a consistent m essage. Fr om ther e, I can s ee and feel that the w or k of ar t i s a pos s i bi l i ty to dem ons tr ate this, to question our way of view, to inte r r ogate the gaz e i n the the ar ti s ti c behav i or, i t’s that y ou c an get a cr itical appr oach to our ways of per c ei v i ng the r eal i ty befor e the ex c l udi ng w or l d for the ar t.

D iego B ernaschina (2016) Th e p r e s e n t w o r k tri e s to ma ke a critical r eflection on the differ ent situatio ns and phenom ena of the so c ia l r e a l i t y o f i n cl usi on an d (mul ti) cultur ality. Thus, the social context, th e ar ti s ti c thought and the aes t h e t i c e x p e r ie n ce i n w h i ch i t’s fr am ed. Ther efor e, this pr oject of the m ul ti fac eted w or k ’s — It’s r e la t e d t o v a r i o u s d i sci p l i n e s, b o th the visuality of plastic and gr aphic ar ts as the tec hnol ogy of m edi a and d igi t a l a r t s — to con sta n tl y red e fining their own obstacle towar ds com plex r eal i ty and ( s em i ) hi dden. Th a t o b j e c t i v e o f the mul ti fa ce te d w or k is not discussed with the politics, nor id eol ogy, but one of the m ai n co n c e r n s a n d s e a rche s of con fl i cts com ing to hum anize the appr oach to the har d r eal i ty, and the hum an bein g i t s e l f a s t h e (de )con structi on o f social identities, and the r ecognition of m eani ng i n v ar i ous ar ti s ti c manifestations, through (audio)visual language (or visual communication), and of versatile and inclusive art.
