Personal Assistant

Adrian Paci Studio

Jan 2015 - Sep 2015
  • I’ve shadowed artist Adrian Paci from late December 2014 and into 2015, following his work “Sue Proprie Mani”, a video-installation project displayed last year (April 2 to June 7, 2015) in a solo exhibition in MAXXI, Rome. Direct and active participation from the first meeting with the MAXXI director Anna Mattirolo and curator Cristiana Perrella to the opening of the exhibition and through the installation and practical setup of the work, through the shooting, recording, costume arrangement and the entirety of the curating process. As Adrian Paci’s PA, I’ve also covered many practical functions, such as drafting/editing and organizing press materials, personally dealing with and making payments on behalf of his accountants, staff, and contractors, taking care of email correspondence, updating calendar, booking hotels, flights and car service. I have provided him with support and assistance showing flexibility towards his multiple demands. I am currently engaged by him to review three of his works.

2015

Visual Research Assistant Intern

Valentina Folli

Dec 2014 - Mar 2015
  • I worked with the Italian designer Valentina Folli during her consultancy role in communication and strategic design, retail and packaging with Venchi for Armani Dolci. We finalised a catalogue displaying Armani food products in association or juxtaposition with fashion shoots. My main contribution was in fact regarding those comparisons, I went through the Armani archive and selected runway images, textures and colours in line with the mood. Together with some illustration work, I developed more specifically one of the three concepts we had created. We selected three different photographers to give each path five pilot images and I assisted in staging one of the shoots. During the internship I developed my research skills and worked as part of a team: the consultancy nature of my position gave me the opportunity to be actively involved in meetings with the Armani team, working on their feedback in order to give shape to the concepts more attentively in line with the brand image.

The curation had to deal with the structure and display of three-dimensional and video works, my responsibility ranged from curating the press materials to allocating the works.
