Daniela Comani, artist of the Art Collection UniCredit, at The Venice Biennale
Italian artist Daniela Comani, whose work Sono stata io. Diario 1900-1999 ("It was me, Diary 1900-1999") was recently added to the UniCredit Art Collection, will be presenting another edition of this piece at the 89th Venice Biennale. Comani is one of 13 artists with work on display in the Biennale's San Marino Republic Pavilion.
Leo Marino Moranti, the Pavilion's National Commissioner, has taken pains to highlight the innovative way the pavilion's artworks fit together to create a true narrative at one of Venice's important and most striking venues. The 13 artists include five from San Marino, two from Germany and six from Italy.
UniCredit has loaned Comani's work to the MAMbo (The Museum of Modern Art of Bologna). The piece consists of an audio CD that comprises 366 daily narrations of actual events from January 1 to December 31. This audio diary is told in first person by Comani herself, who becomes the protagonist of these 20th century events.
