Grazia Toderi Rosso

dimensione ambiente/dimensions variable
One of the most representative artists of the Italian generation that emerged in the early 1990s, Grazia Toderi had already attracted the attention of critics in 1993 when she participated in the 45th Venice Biennale. From her earliest videos – Nontiscordardime (1993), Zuppa dell’eternità e luce improvvisa (1994), Nata nel ’63 (1996), and Centro (1997) – Toderi used a fixed video camera to dilate time inside the framing of the shot and create what are truly “paintings in motion”. In 2000, Toderi launched some works in which the eye of the video camera rises to capture entire cities within its frame. The Capital seen from Random, 2001 (video still) above is the subject of "Rosso", a video that was born from the assembly of various bird’s eye nocturnal takes of Rome immersed in a reddish atmosphere and crawling with lights. The resulting geometrical composition has an oval frame at the center, a declaration of homage to the Baroque architecture of Borromini and to the series of Lucio Fontana "Fine di Dio", realized in 1963 – the year of Toderi’s birth.
