Working on a conceptual footing, Valentina Lapolla’s work is developed in an ongoing dialogue with reality, highlighting the problems and the contradictions which – from a local to a national/global
level – concern the community at large. Her actions and performances are often set in the urban space, in direct relationship with city life. In the installation “Lavoro Autonomo”, made up of a video and a series of photographs, the artist comes to terms with the work and its value, marked today
by a profound sense of precariousness. The actions staged by the artist are minimal gestures interacting with space, uncertain attempts to modify the setting in which she fi nds herself. Bereft of
any immediate goal, or of the usual context of social norms, Lapolla’s interventions attempt to breathe new life into the work looked upon as a transformation of reality, playing on the limit within which
it is possible to invent new spaces of freedom.
