Anna Raimondo (born in Italy in 1981, lives in Brussels and works internationally). Anna Raimondo’s work activates devices for meeting and sharing. It is possible to define it as a journey into social diversity to create possible areas of interaction. The artist uses voice e listening as platforms for meeting, collaboration and exchange, as means of identity diffraction. The methodology is flexible and varying, the process makes herpart of the exchange and makes art a place of encounter. The material is formalized in actions, performances, photographs, videos, sound installations and video. Her work also shows a playful and ironic aspect, in heractions with in the urban space and in her plastic creations. A story, a word, a gesture, an everyday-object become evidence of multiple identities, revealed and problematized.
Anna Raimondo completed her Masters in Sound Arts at the London College of Communication(UAL, London) and is currently doing a doctorate between the Brussels School of FineArts (ARBA) and the ULB University on the relationship between listening practices and feminist urban geography.
