The (un) Real
April 2020

These images arise from fear, nostalgia and uncertainty, from the quarantine, in my case alone as well as many, starting from archive images and, in other cases, asking my friends and parents to self-portrait, converting these digital images into 35 mm negatives, to be projected on a canvas, as if they were a film about a portable screen. It causes the sensation that what we are experiencing is not real, that it is like a movie, a fiction, using the city as a backdrop.
This exercise, showcases an inversion of expressive codes and narrative roles. The images projected as a film are a representation of reality, while the contrasting landscape is a suspended, contained and uninhabited city. The city is now a fiction, an unreachable space of which we cannot temporarily be a part.
