Excited to have met the French artist Sigrid in Casablanca, on the occasion of the International Festival of Video Art and Art Migration in the Metaverse. An eccentric, lively, light-hearted and charismatic woman, she struck me right away.
A few hours after our meeting outside the airport, I I asked her, in French, if she ever used the NFT tool to divulge her Art. Her answer was affirmative as well as her adherence to the project was immediate.
A portrait of an artist whose latest work, presented at the Casablanca Festival, is entitled , not by chance, Serial Portraits.
A singular project that of Sigrid, which offers each spectator to portray her with a drawing, placing the artist herself as a model and the spectator as inventor and creator.
Sigrid therefore represents the perfect artist to portray photographically.
With her avatar interconnected and hung around her neck, the same one that asks her viewers to portray her without looking at the sheet, Sigrid posed for me with elegance, kindness and class.
I tried to portray her also with the drawing, like the other spectators, becoming part of her own work of art. In turn, through my photo, Sigrid entered her Serial Portraits. In perfect symbiosis we are part of each other's work, together her faithful and immortal avatar, in a game similar to that of mirrors capable of replicating images in an infinite fractal.

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.
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.
