Creation of Enigmatic Environments: Paola Pivi’s Reality and Fantasm
Speaker: Aimee Lin, Executive Editor of LEAP
Admission Free. Reservation is required.
Paola Pivi is one of the representative artists of her generation who work with multi-cultural experiences. This talk, by introducing and analyzing Pivi’s art practices, unveils the artist’s extraordinaryaesthetics, creation methodology, and meanings behind them. Using different media to create realistic and surreal situations is the core of Pivi’s art. Her works often appeal to audience’s actual experience on site to generate meanings just the same way as advertising, and also emphasize on scale and presentation. This makes her distinct from those conceptual artists who only seek to criticize the reality or interpret ideas in tedious and abstract fashions. Instead, her works seek to generate feelings on the visitor’s party in an efficient and simple way, and use daily objects and familiar scenes to dislocate and recreate extravagant world.
Free admission, No need for reservation.
