Beatrice Scaccia

2014 Residency: May through June
Beatrice Scaccia works on duration, that is that dilatation of time composed of rhythmic scansions, waits and restarts. Her narrative urge and her need to express herself with figurative painting both originate from a strong communicative instinct that translates into drawings and animation, reminiscent of a certain Renaissance tradition that focuses its artistic study on drawing and the human figure. Indeed key aspects of her works are repetition, interrupted narration and main characters. We could consider her characters kind of drawn performers.

Beatrice’s work has been featured in Europe and USA. Most recent exhibitions include: “DiviNA Commedia”, Museum Arcos, Benevento; “Fino alla fine del mondo” , 41artecontemporanea, Turin; “Les Intermittences du couer”, Ex Elettrofonica. Rome; “Patria Interiore/Inner Homeland”, Golden Thread. Belfast; “QuadratoNomade”, Palace Expo. Rome. Her work is in the collections of The National Cultural Institute of Oslo and of Seul, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Rome and Museum of Contemporary Art of Viareggio (Italy).
