Descrizione Opera / Biografia


The video Self-Portrait is a group of six interviews with six different women, including myself, on six different topics.
The first two interviews are colored in green, the third and fourth in white and the fifth and sixth in red.
The six protagonists are: Judith Thurman (writer), Ingrid Rossellini (professor), Anna Siciliano (student), Marina Sagona (artist), Giovanna Calvino (author) and Anna Funder (writer).
Judith Thurman talks about her parents and her childhood; Ingrid Rossellini talks about moving to New York city in the early eighties and political correctness; Anna Siciliano talks about the difference between American and Italian upbringing and also about anxiety; Marina Sagona talks about codependence and abandonment; Giovanna Calvino talks about depression and approval; Anna Funder talks about chemical identity.
Through the words of these women, my self-portrait takes shape.
I selected the sentences I can identify with completely in the course of the editing.
Marina Sagona was born in Rome in 1967 and in 1995 she moves to New York where she begins her artistic career as an illustrator working for publications such as The New York Times and The New Yorker.
In 2002, after her daughter was born and diagnosed with a rare form of infantile anorexia, she decides to devote herself entirely to her and to visual art.
