A Sense of Surreal and Magic in the Work of Contemporary Italian Female Artists

On this page

Through a practice lead research-creation and critical analysis, I intend to explore why, in the contemporary art world, we are assisting to growing trends that bring us far from a rational vision of reality towards the realm of magic. 

The Surrealists used certain imagery and created some types of magical operations to charm their audience. My interest stands in how these original components continue to stimulate the viewers’ creative spirit and activate ways to interact with the artwork.
