COME RICORDARSI DELLA SETE

(How To Recall Thirst)

Landscape and memory, seen through invisibility, an ephemeral and intangible trace. An investigation on the memory of territory and places. I try to decode the nature and relationship that exists within the individuals who have been crossing it and who live in it. I am interested in the relationship between personal and collective experiences. Through an analysis of imagination, of one’s dreams and memories that change with the passage of time, I focus on small interferences, accidents, intentions, errors, doubts. I collect clues.

By creating photographic works, videos and installations, I represent the visual suggestions of my daily life. I bring the viewer to alienation, with the intention of bringing back a personal experience, a distant memory that surfaces in the mind as one falls asleep, through confused and devoid of precise sensations. It is the feeling of deja-vu, in which familiarity and estrangement are mixed.
