SOFIA MASINI (Madrid, 1991)
The body is a revelation as is landscape
In Sofia Masini’s work the revelation of body and landscape is a dance, a back and forth between two bodies, but also between photography and sculpture and performance. Here there is no complete fusion and reunion. The artist engages in what happens before the complete reunion – she highlights the shedding, the conflict and the hardship of the process, the search for a unity that is in sight, but not yet happening. Her body dances with rocks, between the thirst of desolation and the untameable force of powerful waters, is scarred, fragmented and reconstructed, different, as the morphing process is ongoing. It is a beginning with no end, and activation of a new archive, a search for different equilibriums – the revelation of its traces.
– Excerpt form the text “The body is a revelation as is landscape” by Elisa Medde
Born in 1991 in Madrid, Sofia Masini lives and works in Milan. She received a BA in Cultural Heritage from the University of Milan and continued her studies with a Master in Photography at the IUAV University of Venice. Her interest in the body, meant both as a heuristic tool and as an object of inquiry, guides her artistic researches. Her work has been exhibited in independent spaces and Italian institutions, among others: MAR Museum (Ravenna, 2019), Micamera (Milan, 2020), Diecixdieci Festival (Gonzaga, 2021), Fabbri Foundation (Pieve di Soligo, 2021), Condominio (2021, Milan), Preus Museum/Norway’s National Museum of Photography (Horten, Denmark 2022). Her first photobook, The body is a revelation as is landscape, will soon be released by Witty Books.
