"If one means by political «the sharing of the tangible» with which one reconfigures the world, establishes the visible and the invisible, deconstructs spaces and identities... sometimes, but not often, this can blend/join/be assimilated with the poetic act. This occurs exclusively through the creative process, when an infinite and perhaps utopian gesture is launched with all possible consciousness into the universe of signs.
Anna Marziano’s practice intends to examine the issues that concern the construction of contemporary identity, through a film process which questions subjectivity and social roles, multiple singularities and hidden nuances.
In a constant work in progress that shakes up form and content, Anna Marziano questions the being in the making. It is no coincidence if the expressions «mutability» and «variation» are often found in the titles of her works. (...)". Teresa Macrì, catalogue Panorama 14
