Viviana Rossi-Caffell

Born in 1982, Viviana Rossi-Caffell lives and works between England, France and Italy. Fed by an eclectic background including anthropology, performance, photography and martial arts, her work focuses on the relationship between bodies (intended both as creatures and entities), exploring the connection between space, materials, form, and its inherent narrative potential, in a constant redefinition of balance. The freedom of movement of the mobiles evokes the action of a performer or a musician, and their awareness of the present time: here, now. The stabiles instead invite us to find the movement within the perception. Although her work is never a direct response or a comment on world events – it derives from a more abstract place, close to the unconscious – it inevitably reflects the context and the dynamics in which we are all immersed, as a way to make sense, and most often make light, of what is around us.
