Caterina De Nicola (IT, 1991)
Residency period: September 2021
During her residency, Caterina De Nicola, straddling fictional writing and sound investigation, and focusing on techniques of mythopoiesis, aimed to generate tales of extreme horror and gore, influenced by a historical and social survey of the local surrounding.
Caterina De Nicola is an artist born in Ortona, currently living and working in Zürich. In her practice she resorts to fiction, writing, sound and object investigation, to shape formal and discursive patterns, by developing an analysis of symbols and motifs, as well as their circulation in a larger cultural system. As a dj and producer, she is mostly affiliated with the Zürich based music label and collective Czarnagora. To influence her musical production are subgenres of Noise music, which can sometimes be musical, bringing no-fi aesthetics to its extensions.
