Elena Tagliapietra creates photographs, videos and NFTs that shape unique works with great expressive power throught performances to immortalize the energy that forms between painted bodies, spaces and architectures, in total light or in absolute darkness. Painted souls are camouflaged in the beauty of precious places, stained in the pain of violence, become symbiotic with bright iconic architectures, scream to denounce the compression and control of man in the digital age.
On all the poetry, which shines through every performance, every photo, every video, every NFT which is the soul of Elena Tagliapietra, who with sensitivity and strength confronts the viewer with the many facets of the contemporary world, but also with herself. himself and his own awareness.
“In a world too full of lights, they often end up in the dark” where the real protagonists are not so much the bodies but the “TransAnimAzione”, an ancient term used by the artist to indicate the transformation of the soul through the performative action.
The art of this artist is born from the intensity of the language of the human body, its tensions and movements, from the dynamic and expressive force that signs and colors light up. Her artistic research is centered on narrating man, or rather the “Souls” of men, addressing various issues such as the relationship with the environment and architectural interventions, which can enrich or distort; violence against women and human loneliness, together with the lack of justice that leaves people without a voice. Social themes are intertwined with those dedicated to giving light to the beauty of the human body, transforming it into instant symbolic statues, in opposition to the commodification of the contemporary era.
