About the Artist
Livia Giorgina (b. 1997, Italy) is an illustrator whose visual practice is driven by the potential of delving into a kind of collective imagination, shaped upon art and life, resonating with both personal and shared stories. She seeks images felt at once remote and familiar, belonging to a genuine world, but one that allows myth to live. Livia lives and works in London, UK.
About the Artwork
When the Ball Fell Beyond the Fence explores themes surrounding the ambiguous nature of the garden, seen as an ethereal,and yet dejected, place and as a theatrical environment, where enchantment and fiction join decay. The ball accidentally thrown beyond the fence becomes the narrative expedient to temporarily escape into the dreamlike garden scenery. Fantasy is a glimpse of chance, mystery, and desire in the eyes of the viewer/intruder, depicted in the image.
