Multilingual Visual Poet and Installation Artist Letizia Lopreiato, shares through this video – art piece titled “How does it make you feel?”, created specifically for Culture Night 22, the results of her two months participative observation in the everyday experience of her inclusive visual poetry installation, at this year’s Photoireland Festival 22 (July 7th – August 28th 2022), held at Dublin Castle – The Printworks.
The work being presented here is being the first of a series of “living installations”, as she Letizia describes her visual poetry art environments, devoted to promote social inclusion in the Visual Arts, by bringing photography from a mainly visual experience centered in the use of sight, to the realm of feelings by exploring the depth of all senses, particularly through touch, performance and her visual poetry soundscapes.
