Fabiano Mixo: Woman without Mandolin

Video installation

The artwork rethinks cubism as a film medium by using digital motion compositing, combined with a visual concept that captures several perspectives of the same subject using different camera angles. In the film, the choice of Picasso’s ‘Girl with Mandolin’ confronts the European art context with the evident influence of African art and the vigour of black culture. As a portrait it displays the formalistic methods and aspects of Cubism, expressed through a strong woman: the conscience, the feelings and the memories of different cultures and history.
