I am basically a performer. The action of a body, generally mine, in space and time is essential in my work. My videos and my tangible works are the chapters of a never-ending story of which I am the protagonist. I believe that all art should be gesamtkunstwerk. My body, the ship on which I make this long exploration, has always been a battlefield: former anorexic, eternal feminist, still and always a lone wolf in search of the moon between the branches of the trees.

Francesca Fini is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Rome, Italy. Her live works often address social and political issues, and are a mixture of lo-fi technology, homemade interaction design devices, and live audio and video. Primarily interested in video and live art, she also creates artworks assembling performance art “relics”.
