Bio

Isabella Pers sviluppa i suoi progetti attraverso l’uso di diversi linguaggi artistici, come pittura, installazione partecipativa e performance, video, fotografia, disegno. 

I temi portanti della sua ricerca sono l’osservazione e le connessioni tra gli ecosistemi naturali, sociali, e culturali, l’impatto del dominio antropocentrico sulla vita del pianeta e le trasformazioni del nostro tempo. Le sue azioni collettive, in particolare, sono rivolte ad indagare processi cognitivi che aspirano alla simbiosi tra i viventi e gli altri elementi naturali, analizzando le dinamiche che caratterizzano le scelte della specie umana ed immaginando nuove visioni tramite l’incontro tra diverse percezioni. Negli ultimi anni sto lavorando sulla memoria dell’acqua e delle piante, e su come l’azione umana possa interagire in maniera simbiotica con questi percorsi.

Insieme alla sorella Tiziana è co-ideatrice di RAVE East Village Artist Residency, un progetto partecipativo che apre la discussione sul ruolo dell’arte contemporanea nei confronti dell’alterità animale e sulla necessità di ripensarsi in una prospettiva biocentrica ed antispecista. RAVE ha luogo nel borgo storico di Soleschiano (Manzano, Ud), dove vivono animali salvati dal macello tramite la pratica Art_History di Tiziana e alberi salvati dall’abbattimento. 

Gli artisti che dal 2011 hanno preso parte a RAVE sono: Adrian Paci, Ivan Moudov, Regina José Galindo, Diego Perrone, Tomás Saraceno, Igor Grubic e Giuseppe Stampone. 

Membro di giuria dell’Unsolicited Proposal Program 2014-2015 e del Franchise Program 2015 di Apexart, New York, e di full(Y)_grounding di Bridge Art 2017, 2018 e 2019.

Ha tenuto conferenze sulla sua ricerca e sul progetto RAVE in diverse università, festival e istituzioni, tra cui: PAC Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea di Milano, Museo d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Casa Cavazzini di Udine, Dolomiti Contemporanee, Forum Internazionale InCE/ Continental Breakfast, Venezia, Bordercrossing, Manifesta12 Palermo, Luci nel PARco, incontro LA VITA SULLA TERRA con Pietro Gaglianò e Tiziana Pers, PARC Performing Arts Research Centre, Firenze.

Nel 2008 ha presentato Vesuvian Rhapsody, progetto realizzato da Persisters al Museo MADRE di Napoli, a Imagine art after: Satellite Talk, E:vent, East End London, su invito di Breda Beban, per la mostra imagine art after da lei curata alla TATE Britain.
