Floor <wbr>not <wbr>Four <wbr>- <wbr>Exhibition <wbr>of <wbr>Santina <wbr>Amato

 

Santina Amato is now spending time in Beijing as an artist in residence at Platform China Art Institute. Born to Italian immigrant parents, and raised in Australia, Santina Amato has always dealt with issues of the intergration of two cultures, and so as a result, her contemporary experiences as a young Australian woman with an imported traditional culture, are the driving source of her practice. Her work is an autobiographical executuion of the construction of identity, which in turn lends itself to revisit and expose within her practice, childhood memories and fantasies, cross cultural influences and the female role portrayed through her own Italian upbringing.

 

Based around a fairytale place of deceptively childish charm and logic, where ideas are literally translated into reality, Santina’s work creates a strong visual language through the combination of video performance, ready made and hand made sculpture, within a ‘site-specific’ context. The viewer is not just confronted with the video itself, but also with the other viewers and, with the personal experience of watching. Through the understanding of spatial proportions and harmonics, her work often seeks to create a strongly disorientating space that becomes unsettling or demands the physical participation of the viewer. The result is an energetic and sculptural redefinition of the moving image.
