Curriculum EN IT

Giulia Savorani (1988) is visual artist and filmmaker. She graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. Afterwards she deepened her studies in filmmaking at the Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti in Milan. In 2019 She completed the master Moving Images Art at the Iuav University of Venice.

Her films and installations have been internationally presented in South Africa, Switzerland, Greece, Russia, Lithuania, China, Belarus, Belgium, Turkey and in several italian cities. She won the Video Art Award 2022, an Award dedicated to video art between Italy and South Africa.
Since 2019 she has collaborated as audio video operator for Zapruder Filmmakersgroup. In 2021 she realised the animated film for the exhibition The Glass Ark, animals in the Pierre Rosenberg collection, at Le stanze del Vetro, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice. She works as teacher in middle school and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sanremo (IT) and Brera Fine Arts Academy in Milan.

"The media I work with are video, animation, analogue and digital audiovisual techniques, installations, drawing and painting, following a path of continuous technical and linguistic experimentation.
My research lies on the borderline between visual arts and cinema. As a consequence of an intolerance for the absolute meaning of the single image, I generate stratified narratives, far from the classic narrative mode based on story and plot. Rather, I create flows of images and meanings that are established in the midst of the creative process, often showing its devices. I pursue an idea of art and cinema as thought processes in action, which consequently define themselves as possibilities of emancipation from the subtle mechanisms of imposition and overpowering intimate and social. Artistic practice itself becomes the scene of a learning process in which I probe the psychic and bodily relationships constantly activated in our daily lives. My attention is often directed towards the relationship between human beings, animals, plants and bacterial micro-organisms, with particular attention to the techniques of coexistence between them.
I frequently compose with archive material, coming from personal, institutional or unknown sources."
