Conversation: Naldi Rossano, Masbedo, Deniz Buga & Ewa Hess
MASBEDO is an artistic duo formed by Nicolò Massazza (1973) and Iacopo Bedogni (1970). They have been working together since 1999 and currently live in Milan and Piacenza. In their work there is a constant exploration and consequent mixture of different artistic languages: video, installation, cinema, performance, avant-garde theater, and sound design. They have recently identified the relationship between cinema and art as a favored area of investigation, which they approach with a careful look at both the socio-anthropological elements and the more intimate and poetic ones.
Raffaela Naldi Rossano was born in Naples, Italy, in 1990. She currently lives and works in Naples.
With her work she intends to provoke a discussion about various themes such as identity, relationships and social culture, through a range of mediums, from installation to video, sculpture, text and performance, in order to create and re-create meanings, individually and collectively. Raffaela Naldi Rossano is co-fonder and director of Residency 80121, residency project which aims to cultivate a dialogue between artists and various spaces to support the discussion and exhibition of contemporary art through a direct approach and engagement with each setting to encourage a cultural, but also interdisciplinary exchange in a framework of a humanistic, feminist and ecological discourse
