Born 1972 in Alessandria, Italy. Lives and works in Torino, Italy.
The inspiration and starting point for Marzia Migliora's commissioned work for the Biennale Gherdëina is a wooden robe dancing figurine kept at the Museum de Gherdëina in Ortisei. The video work Fil de sëida (sëida meaning ‘silk’ as well as ’border ’) in the exhibition space of the Circolo Artistico in Ortisei, shows two acrobats on a slack line in the middle of the mountains slowly balancing towards each other. The scene takes place at Passo Vizze, a pass in the mountains at the border between Italy and Austria. The slack line pending over this quarrel-ridden border drawn on paper after World War I turns this invisible demarcation into a tangible one, staging it as a balancing act of bilateral approach.
