Francesca Fini is basically a performer. The action of a body, generally hers, in space and time is essential in her work.
Recently the artist is interested in the creation of surrealistic and site-specific performance-based art films. Her films are medium-length or long-feature that try to interpret the place in which they are conceived and produced – indeed its “genius loci” – through a very hybrid and experimental language that includes videoperformance, videoart, participatory symbolic actions, documentarism and “situationism”; in the form of artistic video guerrilla.
All these works always begin with a deep preliminary research on local culture and history, possible locations for filming, the symbols, objects and significant materials to be used in the actions, the human resources to be involved from the community: performers, actors, local professionals.
