Francesca Fini is an Italian artist working with mixed media, video and performance art. Her live projects, always addressing social and political issues, are mixed with lo-fi technology, homemade interaction design devices, live audio and video. She hacks and cracks everyday objects such as surveillance cameras, wii-mote sensors and therapeutic electrodes, mostly used to give to her work an ironic flavor. “Technology is interesting, but rather than call your smartphone I prefer to twist your stomach talking to you through plastic cups connected with string”. In december 2012 she has been invited to take part to the first “Venice International Performance Art Week”, curated by VestAndPage, featuring artists such as Yoko Ono, Jan Fabre, Valie Export, Boris Nieslony and Hermann Nitsch. She recently won the “Fonlad Performance Art Residency” to prepare a new performance in Coimbra, Portugal, with the support of Istituto Italiano di Cultura. She is exhibiting her work in galleries and museums worldwide.
