Silvia Battista is a multidisciplinary artist and writer working with drawing, poetry, introspective theatre, performance art and writing. Battista is interested in areas of research engaged with perception and identity; with all the processes, discourses and practices that affect the way we see ourselves and others. This touches on ecological, political and cultural issues; on how reality is categorized and consequently who and what is accepted and who and what is excluded. Battista’s objective is to problematize fixed and singular understandings of reality, to destabilize their dividing boundaries and discriminating practices. Art has this wonderful ability to manifest, give voice and empower the intangible, the invisible and the marginalized.
