Maria Iorio is an artist and filmmaker. She collaborates with Raphaël Cuomo. Favouring a collaborative praxis and long-term research, their recent projects engage with past and present global mobilities and unfold the histories shaped by those movements of life, (post)colonial encounters, migrating forms and sounds. Investigating the conditions under which hegemonic historical narratives are produced and can be challenged, their films manifest unheard voices, diasporic experiences, resistant subjectivities. New knowledges become perceptible and can be shared through translation processes, performative archival practices, the aesthetical and political dimensions of listening. Integrating curatorial methodologies in their work, they have created cinema situations and film programmes that revisit the historiography of the expanded field of moving image practices and “minor cinemas” — experimental, amateur, feminist, decolonial. Iorio/Cuomo have presented their work internationally in various exhibitions and film festivals
