Francesca Casu

 

Born 1987 in Sassari, lives and works in Brussels since 2019

 

Francesca Casu’s work is profoundly influuenced by the wildness of her native Sardinian landscape and it’s ancient cultural history. Working directly from nature she translates the experience of long meditative walks into the obsessive translation of sketchbooks and drawings. Thee fauna and fluora finnd their space alongside the myths and legends of an ancient culture that even the Romans could not conquer. Casu’s language is a unique mix of Sardinian ancestral symbols and shamanic traditions searching for their voice amidst the challenges of contemporary civil society. Thee work is rooted in the subjectivity of fragile experience whilst also speaks about a universal conscience.
