IVANA PINNA (1976) multidisciplinary artist, born in a small village of 2500 inhabitants in the centre of Sardinia. After graduating in Political Science she worked within the European institutions believing in the possibilities of a new way of being and relating as nations and peoples. Her interest in learning languages push her to live in different countries: England, Belgium, France, Germany, China, Switzerland, Spain. In 2000, her encounter with the Internet has fueled the illusion of having a powerful tool that offers unimaginable possibilities for developing human relationships and multiplying opportunities for sharing. She started to learn different programming languages for dominating the various techniques of operation of the Web and for many years she has dealt with “buy keywords”.
Her artistic work employs different media depending on the need of each moment and is a combination of aspects and knowledge acquired through the years in various transdisciplinary sectors by integrating as well and intensive study of the body in an anatomical, phenomenological and sensory level.
Over the past years she is working on participatory projects, engaging directly the audience in the creative process, and at the same time collaborates with other artists in trans-disciplinary projects.
She is the catalyst of the IVYnode project, whose goal is the promotion of culture, art, environment, innovation within small territorial communities, among them Nurri, the village she grow up.
An investigation not only on a territorial level, but also intimate and personal, starting
from a microcosm to extend to a macrocosm.
