VITTORIA DI STEFANO
Vittoria Di Stefano’s research centres on material investigation as a method for examining notions of liminality – or in-betweenness – in sculptural practice. She employs temporal, marginal and contingent processes to investigate a range of mutable materials as a means to explore the alchemical and transformational properties of the sculptural object. In Light Bodies, the artist explores the relationship between the self and the material world as one in flux, characterised by a constant stream of incremental adjustments both conscious and innate. In this intimate and unreliable space desire and vulnerability coalesce as the individual attempts to locate themselves within a constantly shifting environment. Light Bodies is a site specific sculptural installation which investigates this space: the unfixed potential of materiality, the agency of matter and the tenuous relationship between the personal body and the material world.
