Fabienne Gallina Baron is a Filmmaker, Visual and Performance Artist living around the world, nowadays more in between Switzerland and her loving native-root country Italy. She`s been born in Switzerland as a child of italian migrants. She graduated as a teacher for primary school and was also a passionate radio presenter and Djane playing mainly in Zuerich at alternative spaces. She worked in the media as an editor and presenter for a kids program and has been a camera assistant for many years and continued studying further in the fields of cinema since 2002. She studied Theater/Dramatics, Queerstudies, Comparative and German Literature in Zuerich, Bern and Berlin. In Berlin she also focused on Bodywork, Dance, QueerArts and Feminist Pornography while also supporting the Pornfilmfestival Berlin for five years long. And of course: Shibari – the japanese Art of Bondage.

 

2016 she started travelling again by foot then later in a Van to rediscover and empower her native and spiritual roots in Italy. She reinforced her gift for sensual and energetic work and her passion for spiritual questions by engaging the Mahayana Buddhism and Reiki. While travelling in her Van with her dog in Italy and Sicily she performed with her ropes as a Street Performer, gave Shibari workshops in Sicily and elsewhere and did sexual educational work by talking about and viewing Feminist Pornography. 2015 she founded with a collegue a Womens_^ Migrant/POC groupe in Bern and invented a shibari space in a yoga studio in Zuerich, and is establishing another one in Bern since February 2019.
 
Fabienne Gallina Barons performative works are mainly implemented in audiovisual installations and uses the technique of Japanese Art of Bondage. The focus of her work is the staging of bodies and energies in space. She is interested in their dissonances and harmonies, the splitting of patterns and expectations assigned to them by the body. Fabienne is also devoted to sex-positive educational work and women’s empowerment.
