Anna was born in a small town near Monza in 2000. She attended the artistic High School “Preziosissimo Sangue” in Monza where she graduated in scenography. Now she is attending the course of fashion design in Naba Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. The surrounding environment has always inspired her to create new scenarios, mixing images through collages and creating small booklets, the embryonic phase of her projects. Also passionate about illustration and photography she’s also discovering the world of sound design and cinema. She believes that contact and exchange with like-minded people can only add value and meaning to the work. Right now, the main artists who are inspiring her are Andrei Tarkovsky, Jan Švankmajer and Alejandro Jodoroswki.
The collection was born from a research linked to the concept of ugliness that has as reference a certain type of Russian aesthetics (and Eastern Europe) contemporary, revisited and integrated by personal experiences, lived in those places. Nature thus becomes a means of visual experimentation, impregnating itself in the garments becoming an indefinite print and a source of hope.
Recurring elements are the symbols (symbolism) unpublished, which take up concepts of Alejandro Jodorosky, revisiting them through a surrealist perspective such as that proposed by Jan Švankmajer in his short films and Matthew Barney in "Cremaster".
Particular attention is paid to the element of waste and its form: an empty form, a negative space that can be transformed into a useful object.
A “mental landscape”, an echo far from reality, “Illeburak” is able to catch the subject and brings it back to life.
An alternative dimension where everyday life is mirrored and altered, familiar images follow each other without being knowable. A continuous mutation doesn’t allow the recognizability that flows away, we are like strangers in a completely personal landscape.
In a World made of certainties “Illeburak” became a view on the unknown, a portal for others dimensions, done by mystery and symbolism that, if looked from the right perspective will always guide you home.
I’m Sara, I’m twenty-two years old and I live in a small town near Monza. Before enrolling in NABA i studied art in London where I first got passionate about photography and fashion. I spend all my money in food and editorials that I treat with love. Because of my shyness I use my creativity to express myself and raise emotions in the people around me. I’m an extravagant girl with a lot of energy and desire to make cool things.
