Elisa Laraia

Italy

Italian artist, live and work in Basilicata. Her research is entirely focused on the themes of identity. Since 2005 she carries on the work “Private Conversation”, video projections on urban architecture that reveal the inner feelings. The work " Private Conversation " works on community involvement to create a choral narration of contemporary society. The people are the first protagonists of an artistic collective action designed to produce audiovisual documentary material relating to the situation of the ethno anthropological context in which the work is performed . Through urban laboratories, involving the community from time to time, and supported by the use of the technique of urban screen, the artistic action works on the concept of transfer of experience from private life to audience. Since 2009 Elisa has directed LAP Laboratorio permanente di Arte Pubblica that transformed the Italy into the largest permanent laboratory of Public Art in Europe.
