Set in an unusual decor, Interview by Daniela Baldelli plays as a symbolic act both for the artist and the Rinomina space. A process within the process, Interview evokes a digestive production result of Baldelli’s ongoing work le(NoN)travail, a continuous archival activity of visual and textual impressions. Over the course of the last two years, the artist has been unpacking physical and digital collections of notations, reflexions, memories that she has been assiduously accumulating over the past twelve years.

Set in an unusual decor, Interview by Daniela Baldelli plays as a symbolic act both for the artist and the Rinomina space. A process within the process, Interview evokes a digestive production result of Baldelli’s ongoing work le(NoN)travail, a continuous archival activity of visual and textual impressions. Over the course of the last two years, the artist has been unpacking physical and digital collections of notations, reflexions, memories that she has been assiduously accumulating over the past twelve years. Diligently logging images encircling her peripheral existence within which the artist plays a number of roles, Daniela Baldelli is ceaselessly scrutinizing the practical meaning of both the state and the function of the artist, of the human, of the woman, of parenting, of working.  A polyform result of her research will be visible, through an in situ installation conceived for the space including a video projection, a series of image prints and a publication. Le(Non)travail is of course a protest - a refusal to give that which one is expected to : work commonly assessed as productive. But at the same time, le (NoN)travail is also a refusal to stop - a fabricated abstract machine perpetually feeding off of the force of the  intersection space resulting from the customary imposed boundaries of norms.

Interview comes to symbolize and celebrate the expansion of Rinomina with an exhibition proposed by its co-founder*. Set over the course of the renovation works, as much as le(Non)travail is a work in progress itself, Daniela Baldelli intends to translate her sculptural mechanism into the physical transformation of space. The works would be installed on the stripped raw walls and floors, thus initiating a future phase of Rinomina .

Interview is conceived as the result of the research grant awarded to Daniela Baldelli by the Centre national d’art plastiques to support the ongoing production of her work le(Non)travail.

Située dans un décor inhabituel, Interview de Daniela Baldelli se déploie comme un acte symbolique à la fois pour l'artiste et pour l'espace Rinomina. Un méta-processus, Interview évoque le résultat d’un condensé de production du (NoN)travail, le projet continu de l’artiste, qui englobe, une activité perpétuelle d'archivage d'impressions visuelles et textuelles. Au cours des deux dernières années, Baldelli a déballé des collections physiques et numériques de notations, réflexions et souvenirs qu'elle a assidûment accumulées au cours des douze dernières
années. Obstinément enregistrant des images entourant sa périphérie existentielle, où elle se voit porter plusieurs casquettes, Daniela Baldelli scrute sans cesse le sens pratique de la condition et de la fonction de l'artiste, de l'humain, de la femme, de la parentalité, du travail.
Un résultat polyforme de ses recherches sera rassemblé dans une installation in situ, comprenant une projection vidéo, une série d'impressions d'images et une publication. Le(NoN)travail est bien entendu une démarche de contestation - le refus de donner ce que l'on attend de nous : un modus operandi généralement considéré comme le travail productif. Mais en même temps, le(Non)travail est aussi une volonté de poursuivre - un outil abstrait qui se nourrit perpétuellement de la force de l'espace lisière résultant des limites imposées par les normes du conditionnement social.
Interview vient symboliser et célébrer la métamorphose de l’espace de Rinomina avec une exposition proposée par sa co-fondatrice.* Tout au long des travaux de rénovation, Daniela Baldelli entend traduire son mécanisme sculptural dans la transformation physique de l'espace. Les œuvres seront installées sur les murs et les sols bruts, initiant ainsi une nouvelle phase de Rinomina.
Interview est conçu comme une restitution de la bourse de recherche accordée à Daniela Baldelli par le Centre national des arts plastiques en soutien à la production de son œuvre le(NoN)travail.
