Dust Thou Art

“Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Meditation of the artist recovering from an eye operation, during her walks in Berlin in May 2017, where she met the famous statue of the Trümmerfrau* infested with caterpillar webs from the tree next to it, while the wind played gently with the strings of the artist’s guitar, turning it into an aeolian harp. * Literally translated as ruins woman or rubble woman, German-language name for women who, in the aftermath of World War II, cleaned up the bombed cities of Germany and Austria, removing all ruins. title: Dust Thou Art •••>

HearteartH – all started from here

HearteartH – all started from here

“The Flying Sisters” are Sonia Laura Armaniaco aka §vonica and Maria Korporal. HearteartH is their first collaboration: a video made in the summer of 2013. The concept took life from these two interlocking words: HEART and EARTH, shaping an anagram projecting some kind of spell from where we cannot escape: a destiny – Heart and Earth affect each other permanently. In the beginning of 2015, the artists decided to open the project to other artists and media makers with a call for artists. The call had a large success and the submitted works were presented and screened in Berlin, Milan •••>
