villa argentina

Arunà Canevascini

2014 - 2017


This work is a visual exploration of the relationship I have with my mother, set in our family house in South of Switzerland.

My mother is an iranian artist. She spent her childhood in Tehran as a secluded child, a condition of isolation which she somehow replicates in her adult life.

As I grew up in Switzerand, Iranian culture come to me as a distant echo.

The work represents the house of Villa Argentina as a stage for her poetic universe and a backdrop for the poetic arrangements of objects I made for the camera.

In this creative solitude à deux, the work attempts to explore issues of domesticity, the reletionship with femininity and the matter of migration.
