YANN MINH PORTRAIT

The second French artist portrayed in Casablanca during the Video Art and Migration of Art in the Metaverse Festival is certainly a person who does not go unnoticed.

Yann wore, for the entire week of the event, his interactive antennas that made him unmistakable.

Always on the move and busy between a workshop and a presentation, I was able to portray him, in the way I wanted, only on the penultimate day of our stay in Casablanca.

His works, characterized by the use of augmented reality and interactive and digital tools, can be defined as Cyberpunk.

Yann, during the Festival, used to photograph and film what was happening around him, as well as animate, his own works of Art using tablets and smartphones.

His way of being and interacting with the real and virtual world prompted me to portray him in a scenario almost of retaliation respect to his inseparable antennas.

Among the moments lived with Yann, I remember a rather surreal one, a short trip together in the car.

In Casablanca the red taxis, rather than following a precise destination direction, move randomly and without the use of the navigator.

Only when we realized that the driver had gotten lost not knowing the way, stuck in the chaos of the city traffic, while he was saying things in Arabic that were incomprehensible to us, Yann resigned and in silence only moved his antennas which, disappointed and disoriented from all that entropy, they've sagged down and also lost their signal.

BIO

Sara has been dedicating herself to photography and photographic calligraphy since 2006. She matured the artistic matrix from her father, musician and composer, who led her to explore not only the world of theater, to which she dedicated herself for several years both as an interpreter as a stage photographer, but also of music, studying classical music theory and playing bass for several years, as well as cinema, influenced by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia where her father worked as a sound engineer.

In addition to the various courses on photographic techniques and workshops dedicated to travel reportage, he attended the training promoted by the MoMA on photography as a means of individual artistic expression, as a technique for exploring and documenting the reality as well as a tool for communication and criticism of society and our culture. Subsequently, driven by an interest in history that draws on photojournalism as a primary source, she followed the course on the use of images, films and their historical interpretation in the 20th century with the University of London & Royal Holloway.

Among the activities followed, Sara has curated various photographic backstage works, the last of these at the Macro Museum in Rome. After having increased her knowledge, she has also matured her style thanks to the continuous and daily training of the artist Alessandro Bavari.

United by photography as an expression of art, as well as by their personal bond, together they created the book Kill the Covid! a rural horror photographic mockumentary set in Italy, faithful to their artistic, visionary and provocative style.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The photographic choice oriented towards Reportage and Street Photography, features strictly black and white calligraphy. Inspired by the language of the Hungarian director Béla Tarr, Sara Aliscioni offers images made of symbolism, drama and poetry in an objective but at the same time sentimental interpretation, describing the harsh reality that sees man at its center in familiar and everyday contexts. The common thread is always the search for beauty even when what surrounds the subject is decadent, dark and forgotten.
