Vincenzina is a Sculptress, Illustrator, Photographer and Graphic designer. Having sculpted baby dolls since the age of 7, her current practice is focused on displaying world issues through her life like creations. Also creating comic books, furniture and clothing to support the stories she tells through her work.
The body is a site used for mindfulness and self-reflection, in which we try to understand ourselves in relation to the work around us. Through my work, my intention is to use this body as a material that is both temporal and vulnerable. I hope that this action evokes both humility and empathy in the viewer.
Orthography of Intimacy is a body of work that explores the themes of intimacy, trust, sensuality, aesthetics, beauty and alternative sexuality, portrayed through portraiture in different media. Through the use of familiar, conventional ways of representing, as well as the classical medium of bronze in dialogue with photography, it seeks to challenge normative culture perspectives on traditional beauty. Through presenting intimacy, vulnerability and alternative sexuality in an aesthetic way it aims to elevate these expressions from an underground culture into an arena of the public gaze, as well as demystify common stigmas surrounding BDSM (Bondage and Discipline; Dominance and Submission; Sadomasochism) practices, specifically rope bondage. It seeks to create a space where people are encouraged to explore, with their minds, the beauty of BDSM, as well as appreciate the power of the intimacy and aesthetics of Kinbaku (the art of traditional Japanese erotic bondage).
Performance 8:30pm : On the opening night, artists Dax Vorona and Sid Tangerine will come together to create a collaborative performance piece. In her practice, Dax, whose works are featured in the exhibition, explores themes of intimacy and connection. She will use the medium of aerial performance art – rope bondage self-suspension – to explore these themes. Sid is a sound composer who works with analogue modular synthesisers. Together they will improvise a dialogue between movement and musical composition.
