Notes Corin Sworn is the 5th winner of the Biennial Max Mara Art Prize for Women.
"This publication coincides with her installation Silent Sticks, inspired by characters and tales of mistaken identity from the Italian Commedia dell'Arte."
Summary Corin Sworn, winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women 2013- 2015, creates a new large-scale installation Silent Sticks (2015), for the fifth edition of the Prize. The work, a result of Sworn's 4 month Italian residency, is inspired by the characters and tales of mistaken identity from the Italian theatre. These improvised plays, performed by touring troupes, originated in Italy from the 16th century and influenced Shakespeare and artists from Goya to Picasso. The installation features a dramatic stage set with props, costumes, sound and film: performative and theatrical devices, which retell an infamous story of deception and imposture.
