Rita Casdia – Skin Life, 2:28, 2014


Skin Life is an animated video with digital drawings. This short animation is built around the symbolic meaning of the skin overlying the body and its connections, which can establish when it comes into contact with the outside world. The visual narrative that it depicts is fragmented, dreamlike but aims mainly to suspend the movement of the tragic actions of the main characters as in a still life.

Sound: Antonio Dilillo

Rita Casdia (ITA) /// My work studies the basic mechanisms that rule feelings, focusing mainly on the dynamics generated by emotional connections and sexuality.
I make emotional worlds that evolve through a broken and uninhibited narrative structure in which I mix references from classic iconography, random elements, everyday banality, my experience as well as my dreams.
