 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1975 in Italy. Lives and works in New York.

Rä di Martino’s work encompasses film, photography and installation. “I am definitely drawn to moving images and I consider it my main medium,” says the artist. She explores the cinema field as an inheritance including the images, the stories and the memories from which she is inspired to create new narratives. Di Martino’s films are highly contextualized and often quote well-known movies. Her practice approaches the passage of time, as well as the differences between epic narratives and lived experiences. One may say that her works are characterized by a tension between pathos and a certain detachment: a disconnectedness that interrupts the synchronicity attaching image and text.
