Rabarama Interview with Istanbul Art Snob Magazine
In 2014 Rabarama partecipated at the Art Fair Contemporary Istanbul, with Gallery Ilayda, and her artworks had a great success among Istanbul art lovers and collectors. Following the event, the magazine Istanbul Art Snob interviewed the Artist about her career and the relationship with Oriental cultures.
The relationship between the Artist and Oriental cultures has always been a constant in her works, from the I-Ching series of sculptures to the symbols and letters of Chinese and Indian tradition on the skin of her sculptures, as Rabarama declares: “I feel that the Far Eastern culture was already present in my culture (maybe thanks to Venice, Marco Polo and many others) and when I repeatedly visited China I really recognized the importance of Asian culture (in general). I was fascinated by it, but not only because of 'exoticism' but because of a sort of 'familiarity', as the Oriental spirituality is so universal!”
The interview reveals also some of the future projects of Rabarama: “I’m involved in very stimulating projects for 2015 and I’m happy to announce that the next year there will be the second edition of the Rabarama Skin Art Festival (with Kryolan) where the best body artists from Italy will be invited to create an artwork on the skin of the models.
“In January I will be in Amsterdam at Artist-IQ event (www.artist-iq.nl) and in March there will be an important event in Las Vegas, a charity event with the Cirque du Soleil to benefit the NGO One Drop and I will donate one of my sculpture to contribute (and this sculpture is related to another big project involving art, science, culture but I can not speak of it now…top secret… )”
