Filmmaker and artist Marinella Senatore works with video, photography, drawing, installation and sound. In her projects, often developed in collaboration with institutions as museums and universities, she involves entire communities in the creative process (i.e. a community of retired miners from Enna, Sicily; more than 15000 citizens of Derby, UK; 300 Lower East Side residents, in NYC; 1200 citizens of Madrid, among others). The public is involved as co-writer, actor, set designer, camera operator, director…sharing time, experiences and skills, acquiring new knowledge in an atmosphere of ongoing workshop, in contact with the contents they find in their environment and according to the level of involvement and their backgrounds.Connecting personal events with collective processes, fact and fiction, her projects encompassed a whole variety of relations, something that involves negotiations, between the instigator (the artist), the participants, the geopolitical context, etc. negotiated in the public sphere, fostering the construction of an archive of shared narratives that creates a sense of community.
