• Andreco
Andreco was born in Rome. Since 1999 he is researching on the symbolic and mystical world, he attributes to the internal organs a symbolic messages. He likes the impact of the images that communicate a deeper meaning, beyond reality, and are able to stimulate the imagination of the observer. He want to show what the eyes can’t see.

Video Title: Organs Play (Sonata D’organi) / Year of production: 2009 / Duration: 2’ 08’’
MUSIC: NEIL ON IMPRESSION
Work synopsis:
[…] To draw person and animal figure with their internal organs, at the beginning was a sort of provocation against the traditional and superficial sense of beauty. It’s a way to underline the existence of a living organism, the complexity and the fragility of a body, that is something different from just a beautiful object. This video sign a evolution in my work, in this video the organs escape from the body and start to play music. The second part of the video in fact is a report of a installation that I made in collaboration with 7 musicians, the “Neil on impression”, for a exhibition in Bologna “Organ Plays”. The musicians were playing in a big black cube made in wood and cotton and the people were all around the cube looking the musicians playing through the black cotton wall, the sensation was as observing the organs in functions under the skin. […]
(From an Andreco interview for the Short+Kort Exhibition publication in Copenhagen.)
About “Organs Play”: “Andreco: I’d give you every organ of my body, I’m a magician with a special skill, which is much more than cutting women in two parts. Each one of my organs has a life of his own, because I’ve got the alchemical formula with which I really own my body, and I’m getting concentrated on yours now. Music!

Video Title: RE-EVOLUTION / Year of production: 2009 / Duration: 2’ 34’’
Work synopsis:
This video painting springs from the core characteristic of my research in which I tried to blend reality and vision to achieve a timbric and hybrid mixture. Frame after frame, the video transcends through a work of animation (design and collage), intertwined and merged with real shooting. “RE-EVOLUTION” is a roar of rebellion against progress and its contradictions. The main character mimes a sort of raging dance, thus unfolding a story where symbols and archetypes of contemporary society implode and explode into a frenzy of signs and forms.

Video Title: Submergency / Year of production: 2007 / Duration: 1’
Work synopsis:
Dreams that we try to fulfill. Often we clash with reality in which we risk to be trapped in a permanent apnea, knowing how it’s difficult to change our state of mind.
From Monica Piccioni e Bruno di Marino: “…Submergency: Both videos, narrative tableaux concept; images of great visual impact that have their own strength and visual power; narrative crossovers that demonstrate how much Vrizzi has absorbed from her background in cinema, widening her view – thanks to a remarkable skill for the iconographic synthesis – towards the probably wider and more complex field of visual arts and trying to express her own personal imaginary way on a high quality level.

Technique: 3d computer graphics / Support: HD720p video, 16:9, Blu-Ray, Stereo audio (sub converted to DVD)
Work synopsis:
Rendezvous with Rama by Artur C. Clarke, A Descent into the Maelström by Edgar A. Poe, L’assunzione della vergine by Correggio (Holy Virgin’s Assumption) in Parma. Artworks titles that have a recall to a direction, a movement, a vector. Straight, rectilinear, ascending or descending. In every case associated with a rotation or a revolution on the movement’s axis. Those artworks describe situations and subjects very different, in times and cultural contests very far from each other. But they have in common some out of the ordinary descriptions of fluids materials (as clouds, or water), depicted far from their usual shape or appearance. Descriptions of plastic, solid and very animated fluids. Correggio’s clouds and Edgar A. Poe’s Maelström are fluid sculptures! Protagonist, not simple background element. The “cylindrical sea” depicted by Clarke is an architecture, a mystery and a presence of crawling life.

Video Title: Territories / Year of production: 2009 / Duration: 2’ 25’’
Work synopsis:
Standing in an area covered in gravel, a number of people are required to make the same movement: to delineate a personal barrier with their feet. Everyone is expected to mark off his own territory, regardless of the presence of the others. The act of establishing one’s own territory in a common space represents the definition of oneself in social relationships. The deeper someone digs into the gravel with his foot, the more defined the border of his territory becomes. The size and shape of the single space become the visible metaphor for the individual personality. Defining oneself becomes a struggle between the colonizers and the colonized, which shows itself in the various interactions between the people involved. Satisfying one’s own need for territory involves invading and occupying the space of others or, conversely, not attempting to define a precise shape but occupying as much space as possible while avoiding the others. The dust rising up from the moving feet and the noise of digging into the gravel complete the impression of a hard struggle.

Video Title: I ain’t superstitious / Year of production: 2009 / Duration: 5,37
Work synopsis:
This video was made after the realization of a site specific installation and performance. In a church in Umbria. A bride dressed with old newspapers gets into the church. she is alone none will take her to the altar and none is waiting for her. Concentrated and secure she starts walking on the mirrors that substitute the carpet on her way to the altar crashing them under her high heel shoes.
The title “I ain’t superstitious” (as the blues song) is ironic. Everything is about culture, religion, tradition and superstition. Our society is suffering of identity crisis. we are not able anymore to recognize our own roots and culture, and often we look for more exotic foreign style of life and philosophy. We need sometimes to crash our traditions but doing it without recognizing our origins can be dangerous, and we might crash ourselves, as the bride in the video that is crashing not only the mirrors but her own image reflected under her feet.

Video Title: Opinions in Shanghai / Year of production: 2010 / Duration: 08.08
Work synopsis:
The work consists of 28 interviews shot with passers by in a middle class area of Shanghai, China, in September 2010. It suffers from an evident lack of communication, a lack of real interest, the lack of a real microphone, and from acute difference. Just like almost every other attempt. What else is there to say about a work where nothing is said? It is a work that asks not to talk rather than pretending there is something to say.

Video Title: Torture#2 / Year of production: 2001 / Duration: 4’
Work synopsis:
Torture#2 is a part of a project, called Tortures, composed by three video that proposes three types of imposition/resistance. The repression of the freedom of expression, cultural and personal identity is still the limit which human beings have to answer to on a daily basis in the search for a way to live together. The occupation of the territory to affirm the growing power generates the lack of other geographical and cultural identity and is the main cause of conflicts between people. Carve out a “space” for oneself is the urgency that impels us to resist to any abuse.

Human and the human behavior has been the subject of great interest for me. From improving my drawing skill doing many sketches of human life to the painting and other reading that i do is mostly related to humankind. As myself is one of them.
The Human being is the most beautiful creature ever created physically, mentally and emotionally on the one hand on the other hand we see the evil part here and there. I wonder this is the same individual who can be cruel as demon and, kind and peace as Buddha.
In this short animation I have used a children puzzle blocks that make up the human and changes to the different form of the animal (cow, bulls) and skull that represent the animal that is in the human which comes out as a result of anger, frustration and finally the death which is the real truth saying let’s act human.

Video Title: Pre-concept / Year of production: 2010 / Duration: 2’ 45”
Work synopsis:
I try to find different media to explore ideas as well as experimenting to know understanding of context. I have been willing to appreciate different aspect of interpretation because I want to know background of reality.
First experience for me to articulate ideas on new media (Video). I got chance to know video art through short video art workshop. I have tried to focus pre-conception on video. Especially, I have show concept on video, how take place the pre-conception in mind and what we expect result? Result might be anything.
Human beings make concept before he does work anything, but consequences might be anything, but that is process of thinking or developing. Human mind or human being is amazing. He has got mind as well as emotion, memory, sensation, perception, intelligence as well as background of developing process etc. He imagines and guesses. Thinking is complex mental process, mental exploration. Concepts depend on past experience, learning process, perception and intellectual capacity. Pre concept develops among stimulus, concept and hypothesis. How he passed past life (experience, background) that is important part for concept making process. Human beings entirely perceive circumstances before thinking. He understands co- relation each other as well as tries to solve the problems. Thinking is totally mental behavior process. Human psychology is complex to understand but we guess. So, how we can analyze condition of human different thinking process? Maybe, we should be observe background of condition and current moment

Video Title: ENSLAVEMENT / Year of production: 2010 / Duration:
Work synopsis:
Nepali people have been suffering from load shedding for a few years. Consciously or unconsciously, they try to store energy during available of electricity so that they can use it in load shedding time. Eventually it has resulted in the requirement of more sockets for every plug where in the past one socket in each room was quite enough. This is all due to our dependency on technologies to accomplish our day to day task and responsibilities.
