ABOUT DAGNINI

Dagnini embarrasses a spectator with her creativity, and at the same time feels embarrassed herself, both psychologically and physically. It helps to set up the relation with a spectator on equal terms. Thus, many of Dagnini's performances are based on such devices as body image destructuration and expectations error, i.e. breach of order and some accustomed or implied scenario.
Environment is one of the instruments in artist’s installations and performances. Depending on the place, its characteristics and context, same artwork transforms and obtains new properties.
Dagnini’s oeuvre combines various artistic practices: for instance, she includes objects in performance, performances in installation, etc.
"I use different media. It allows me to be free and stay aside from genre labels, and even to make something that frightens me a little in my next projects".
