English to Italian: Tate Modern's exhibition of black art is the show we need in the age of Trump General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting
Source text - English The fight between abstraction and figuration is clearly laid out in the work of Faith Ringgold, one of the powerfully skilful black woman showcased here in American People Series #20: Die, where black and blond are seen juxtaposed in almost caricature fashion. Shocking bright red blood sullies white shirts, a gun is held in the hands of a white man, a knife in the hands of a black man, while in the foreground two small children – one white, one black – huddle together staring out at the viewer in abject terror. It is, perhaps, a prayer for the future of white and black together.
Translation - Italian Il conflitto tra l’arte astratta e quella figurativa è chiaramente espresso nel lavoro di Faith Ringgold, una tra le più talentose artiste afro-americane in esibizione. Nella sua opera American People Series #20: Die, il biondo e il nero dei capelli delle figure vengono giustapposti in modo quasi caricaturale. Le macchie di sangue risaltano in modo impressionante sulle camicie bianche. Si possono notare un uomo bianco che tiene in mano una pistola e uno di colore con un coltello. Mentre in primo piano si vedono due bambini - sempre uno bianco e uno di colore - che si stringono fissando con terrore lo spettatore. È forse da leggersi come una preghiera per un’unione futura tra le due culture.
I am a postgraduate student at the University
of Essex and currently I am working on my dissertation focused on the field of
audiovisual translation. I previously studied English, German and Dutch at the
University of Padua. After graduating, I worked as a homework assistant in my
local middle school which gave me the opportunity to be in contact with
children and to develop several skills, especially interpersonal and
organisational. After this experience, I moved to Colchester to continue my
University career. My MA course allowed me to enhance my language and cultural knowledge,
to improve my translation and interpreting skills and to learn how to use
translation software such as Trados and WinCaps Quantum.
