Arunà Canevascini – Villa Argentina


Arunà Canevascini – Villa Argentina

Diploma project by Arunà Canevascini

This work is a visual exploration of the relationship I have with my mother, Anahita, set in our family house in the South of Switzerland. My mother is an Iranian artist. She spent her childhood in Tehran as a secluded child, a condition of isolation which she somehow replicates in her adult life. The work represents the house of Villa Argentina as a stage for her poetic universe and a backdrop for the poetic arrangements of objects I made for the camera. In this creative solitude à deux , the work attempts to explore issues of domesticity, feminity and sexual boundaries.
