Can you believe it’s already December? The weather in Berlin is freezing! I don’t know about you, but my Sicilian soul is still not used to this cold! And since hibernation is not socially accepted for humans (not even for aliens with human semblances) there is only one thing to do to survive! Get ready cause it’s time again to get together and warm each other with art, gluhwein, and silly chit-chat.
Hello hello there! Thinking about getting some art from the markets in town? I have some great news then for you!
For all the Berliners and Berlin visitors in Autumn and Winter, you can find me usually on Sunday at RAW Flohmakt, from 9 am to 5 pm. However this Autumn and Winter I will take part in some special markets! Here is the list of the special events where you can meet me and purchase art directly from the artist (that’s me!):

“that question the conventional male gaze and imagine new ways of seeing and looking at the body, and that open a door for new, subversive representations of the human figure and desire.”

UNSUBMISSIVE GAZES Opening 25.05.2023 – 19H FLIPA Art Gallery· Passeig del Born, 14
«The first feminist gesture is to say: “OK, they’re looking at me. But I’m looking at them”. The act of deciding to look, of deciding the world is not defined by how people see me, but how I see them» (Agnès Varda, Filmer le désir: voyage à travers le cinéma des femmes, 2000). For centuries, art history, film and visual culture have been shaped by an hegemonic and omnipresent gaze, anchored in the patriarchal system, that has dominated the representation of the body and constructed our way of looking at the world. To decide which bodies are seen and which are made invisible, and above all the ways in which they are presented, has been a choice available to few, employed to further a very particular way of seeing, objectifying and sentencing these bodies to passivity and taking away their own gaze. In ‘UNSUBMISSIVE GAZES’, we recover the words of Agnès Varda to perform a collective gesture towards the deconstruction of the hegemonic gaze and lay out a set of alternative approaches: new ways of seeing and seeing ourselves, of reappropriating images and opening spaces where other forms of representation are possible.
This collective exhibition brings together a group of works from different mediums —photography, painting, installation and sculpture— that imagine different perspectives of the body and unfold new dynamics between looking and being looked at. Through pieces that explore violence, intimacy, ableism, body diversity or the ideas around femininity/masculinity, we aim to instigate new points of view and fracture the singular, reductive gaze that crystallizes the body and converts it into an empty object.
I am delighted to invite you to the most cheerful, colorful, and open-minded market in town!
QWEER SPRING MARKET
Happy to be part of the queer Berlin community with my art! You can not miss this wonderful event, more than 100 Queer-owned stands between artists, designers, and no-profit activists, and an amazing line-up of performances, music, shows, and workshops that will blow your mind!
As my dear Berliner supporters already know, for some years I am part of Berlin’s community of independent artists who weekly roll their sleeves up and bring their work to the local market to meet the townies.
I love to set up my pop-up gallery to present my work to the world passing by. It is a fruitful display window and a great opportunity to get feedback about my art.
I discovered that being an autonomous artist and selling my work without intermediates is the way that works better for me. And in my personal experience, collectors are always happy to purchase art directly from the artist and have the chance to have a good chat about it.
Said that I want kindly invite you to distrust whoever else is offering to sell my work. I unfortunately had already a couple of experiences with theft and plagiarism of my art. So I take this occasion to reiterate that if you would like to buy my work, the only way to do it is directly from the artist, that is me 🙂 through my online shop, visiting me at my studio in Berlin, or the markets.
Here is a list of Berlin markets where you can find me and spend a pleasant day between art, vintage clothes, and antique treasures:
RAW Fleamarket in Friedrichshain, Berlin: every Sunday unless there’s the storm of the century 😉
