The Fabbri Prize in the Expanded Festival – LFF2021

Artist Vincent Ceraudo exhibits his winning work of the eighth Francesco Fabbri Prize in the village of Lago

The young French-Italian Vincent Ceraudo, born in 1986, is already an award-winning artist. He studied in France and then in the United States, where he established himself in the field of video. He has received prizes, most recently the Stipendium for artists from the Mondriaan Fonds in Amsterdam and the C.N.A.P. in Paris. His video works are part of collections such as the FRAC Alsace and the FRAC Provence Alpes-Côte d’Azur in France, and the In Between Art Film collection in Rome, Italy. Vincent in 2019 participated in the Premio Francesco Fabbri in the Emerging Art section and his work From there we came outside and we saw the stars won first prize.

The work is a video highlighting two buildings conceived by the rationalist architect Giuseppe Terragni. He filmed at the Asilo Sant’elia in Como, a school whose architecture was designed to awaken children, but also recreated with computer-generated images the Danteum project in Rome, a monument dedicated to Dante, but never realised.


Following a non-linear narrative, From There We Came Outside and We Saw the Stars consists of a journey into rationalist architecture, and questions through the exploration and apprehension of space our ideas about collective memory and forgetting, the phenomenology of space and perception, or even the links established between the architectural surface and the digital surface of the image.


For Lago Film Fest, an installation of the work has been conceived that follows the site-specific logic. It will be on view in the Festival Espanso every evening of the festival, from 7pm to midnight.
