Laura Quattrocchi, Artist Statement

Movement is the beginning. It grounds me, and connects me to the whole picture. I am interested in the practice of movement as a way to learn about myself and in the observation of human patterns as a way to understand the world I live in. I am always looking out there for common denominators, what will break the division and walls created by society. Observation is the beginning of my process. Most of my projects require lots of time and labor through which I incubate the idea. The repetitive movement brings me to understand my material and my concept. Some of my projects combine all I am interested: movement, objects, materials, spectacle.
