About Me

Corpus – discourse.
Ephemeral extensions.
Dynamism essence.

Russell Giacosa creates works about the relationship of the human being to himself, to otherness, to space and deals with questions of the present time.

The works mix performance, texts, video, plastic art, movement, objects and sound.

It is a multidisciplinary project for stage spaces, galleries, public spaces.
It is founded on many years of work in different areas of performance production and proceeds on a path that is the result of continuous processes and trials.

STATEMENT
Russell Giacosa collects real and imaginary poetic identities. The centre is the writing that she develops as body, volume, understanding literary invention as spatial invention.

The performance often arises from the relationship with concrete aspects and primary materials, through the body, as a living element to share an investigation on the present time. With the desire to abandon the known world, the metaphysical universe, She wants to be faithful to sound, colour, nature, logos.
