Power, Decisions, History, Economy. In the Bank of Naples Foundation, the two managers perform in its historical archive. The archive contains bank documents dating back from 1500, coming from Italy and Europe. Human stillness vs. ancient cheques stillness.
Giulia Giannola is an Italian artist born in 1985, in Naples. After finishing her Bachelor degree in Venice at the IUAV University, she moves to Berlin where she graduated as Meisterschülerin in Installation and Multimedia at the Universität der Künste (UdK), with Prof. Christiane Möbus and was guest student in artist Candice Breitz class at HBK Braunschweig. Her work draws inspiration from the observation of public/collective or personal life situations, in which time factors such as duration and rhythm, are called into question, twisted and transformed, suggesting alternate realities. She produces staged situations, performances, interventions in public space, and videos. She received the Elsa-Neumann-Stipendium des Landes Berlin in 2014. Her works have been shown in “Meridian|Urban, Curatorial projects on health”, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Ikono on Air Festival, Collegium Hungaricum, Berlin; Meisterschülerpreis des Präsidenten der UdK Berlin, Georg Kolbe Museum, Berlin, Germany; Italy in a Frame,Triennale di Milano, Milan; Shiryaevo Biennial,Regional Museum of Samara, Russia; Phaenomenale 2010, Science and art festival, Kunstverein Wolfsburg; HDLU, Zagreb; .HBC gallery, Berlin; Organhaus international video art festival, Chongqing, China; Biennial of young artists the Mediterranean, Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan; Avi Festival,Israeli Cinema Museum, Jerusalem; Public Space_s, Athens, Greece; Digital Marrakech, Marrakech, Morocco.
