Takuu Atoll

Takuu Atoll Gumprint and movable type print on japanese restoration paper 7gr / m2, plexiglass, lead, nylon thread Installation of environmental dimensions (4 sheets 100x100cm each, plexiglass case 13x23x16 cm) Takuu atoll, in Papua New Guinea, is sinking. Due to global warming and rising sea levels this cluster of islands is gradually disappearing. In this piece, the topography of the atoll has been replaced by screenshots of interferences taken from online maps, through these interferences the shape of the island breaks up and recomposes, like a blurred memory. Legends say that the Takuu atoll was built by spirits with the bones of Oceanus, and for that reason many of its inhabitants refuse to abandon it, resisting the force of the tides by building dams with dry branches and stones. The cultural and musical heritage of this island is rich with tradition, and composed of thousands of songs handed down from generation to generation. This project investigates the identity of Takuu’s people, that despite having resisted colonisation for centuries, cannot be separated from the impact of their geographical realities. All that will remain of it will be its geographical coordinates.

piano B

Plan B Gelatin silver print on baryta and polythene paper, 88 pieces, cm 20×20 each, water, plastic bowl, installation of environmental dimensions A raised hand: a direction, a greeting, a desire, an intonation, a victory, an urgent cry for help, a threat, a blessing, a presence. A precariously balanced image, just waiting to be looked at, suspended on a judgment full of uncertainties. Only in this condition of apparent fragility the image finally turns into a free, lightweight tool which accompanies the eye through an in-time journey and allows to see things as a part of a process. Clinging and determined to preserve its attachement to its own profiles, the image is wise enough to understand the right moment to jump and gloriously return to the hands of those who recognise themselves in it.

Autoritratti a memoria

My face blends with that of the passerby, who has a crucial role in my analysis, given the speed at which we observe people around us every day, without being able to memorize their features. The figure becomes, therefore, a shadow, a non-defined presence, only carrying the memory of a mere perception.

Studi su sconosciuti

This series is a part of a personal archive of various printing techniques with dark room analogical photography. The work process is based on reprinting and re-working the old images. I want to represent the image of the outsiders, the forgotten ones and give them new identity.

Arcipelago

The ‘Arcipelago’ serie comes from the analysis of the memory as a fragmented portion of time which is transformed into an island shape. The picture is thus isolated, fragmented and recomposed in order to create new worlds made up by archipelagos of memories.
