Raffaella Crispino (IT/DE) / “La casa dei sette conti” (The seven counts' house) - 2005 - 03:58 min

.: Statement

“The seven counts' house” is a true story about incapacity. The animations display absurd and poetic possibilities to reach a Neapolitan terrace. The possibilities turn personal and intimate towards the end and go beyond the factual limits.
-Raffaella Crispino

.: Biography

Born in Naples in 1979, she soon moved to Catania. Here she started studying set design at the Academy of Fine Arts. She finished the Academy in Naples and then moved in Venice to study visual arts at the graduate programme, IUAV University Venice for two more years. There she studied and worked with international artists, such as Antoni Muntadas and Mona Hatoum.
In her artistic investigations, she uses various media such as performance, video, happening and installation. In her practice, every device is a possibility whenever there are unshakable concepts behind it.
Most of her works are related to sound, journey and experience.
Thanks to several awarded scholarships, she is now living in Berlin and, starting from autumn 2006, in New York.
