Francesca Lolli – born in Perugia, moved to Milano in 1998 after her brief philosophy studies in Perugia. She graduated the school of acting ‘Teatro Arsenale’ as an actress and shortly thereafter attended the ‘Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera’, graduating magna cum laude as a scenographer.
While she was attending school, she worked on stage as an actress with Teatro Arsenale’s company and participated in countless shows (‘Jeux de massacre’ by E. Ionesco, ‘il berretto a sonagli’ by L. Pirandello, ‘Pulp’ by C. Bukowsky, ‘L’eglise’ by L. F. Celine etc..). For her dissertation she decided to shoot a documentary about a famous nyc photographer : Andres Serrano. Since that moment she decided to completely change her life and dedicate herself completely to video art. Her research is aimed on gender- and socio-political issues.

The solo feature -representing a kind of retrospective, is including a selection of 12 video performance works originating from the years 2013-2020 – unique in their kind, transporting an engaged feminist point of view.

The Corona crisis is demanding from people around the globe to reduce their social contacts in order to avoid a rapid spread of the virus.
The Wake-Up! Memorial was inviting audio-visual artists to submit one work – video and/or soundart – dealing with this – hopefully temporarily limited shut down .
The new show case is representing an act of solidarity for the victims of the pandemic and a warning alike addressed to the human population on Earth to rethink the current values of the individual and the society as a whole.

The term “darkroom” refers to the screening spaces museums often establish for the presentation of audio-visual works, which usually are difficult to be handled in conventional museum exhibitions due to the audio aspect.

The ALPHABET DarkRooms are dedicated to cooperating institutions and the presented curated programs forming the unity of an artistic contexts. Some cooperations like CeC – Carnival of e-Creativity were lasting 10 years generating a more comprehensive context than Tenri in 2015, for instance, which however is unique this way, that the curated video programs were created for this special purpose, but this is generally good for most DarkRoom video programs.
