• Victoria Performed in Italian Futurist Sintesi

    Posted on October 15th, 2009 Victoria No comments

    Victoria performed several Italian Futurist sintesi (short plays) in 2009 that she translated over 35 years ago (!) for the seminal book Italian Futurism Performance written by her then-husband Michael Kirby that included her translations of manifestos and sintesi.  Several institutions in San Francisco celebrated the 100th anniversary of F.T. Marinetti’s Futurist Manifesto, including the Italian Institute of Culture, where she performed Education during the opening of a Depero exhibit on October 14, 2009, and Brava Theatre, where she performed in eight sintesi three times on Sunday, October 18, 2009.  She says, “Little did I think I’d being doing performance art again. If I had known I’d been performing some of the sintesi, I might have translated them a bit differently, to make speaking the lines easier!.”

    Victoria Kirby uses pieces of nature in her printmaking process, mixing representations of trees, leaves, pods and insects with organic materials printed in relief.  Victoria experiments with varying textures by the use of grasses, leaves, lace, bubble-wrap and other materials to make plaster plates, and juxtaposing these with detailed imagery on etching plates. Part scientific botanical study, part playful organic abstraction, Victoria’s observations of nature are thorough and beautifully rendered, appealing to aficionados of both illustrative and relief printmaking.
