Francesca Grilli

a still form the video Gordon 

Video artist Francesca Grilli mixes video techniques, photography and performance all in one. The results are particularly poetic videos about family relations and the space around us. In Gordon you find a special portrait of her relation with the grandfather, she says: "The aim of this work is to consider heritage, secret identification and distance in the human relationships. I ask my grand-father, Giordano Bruno, a man of eighty-seven years, to play (bocce)bowls with me, an activity that he plays every day. we play with new rules, keeping the winner and the colour of the play unknown , using many bowls and possibilities." See the video and more Francesca works on her website.
