Lavinia XausaStill: So Loud the Sky Can Hear Us
Lavinia XAUSA (1992, Italy) is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Rotterdam. She earned her bachelor's degree with honours in Visual culture and media studies in 2015 from University of Bologna and received her MFA in photography at AKV St. Joost in the Netherlands in 2017. The center of her artistic practice consists in applying semiotics and sacred art research to an ongoing, participatory art practice, by involving groups of people on self-analysis and auto-recognition of their own role in history. In 2018 she received the Research and Development grant awarded by CBK Rotterdam foundation (NL) for her project Further than Hip Hop and in 2019 she achieved the Stipendium for emerging Artists by the Mondriaan Fund. In 2021, she won the RTM pitch with her project So Loud the Sky Can Hear Us (2022), part of IFFR 2022. From 2020-2021 she was artist in residence by the Hamburger Community of Art at Roodkapje. Her works have been shown at Noorderlicht International Photography Festival, (NL), Organ Vida (HR) and Tent (NL).
