Personal show from the 12th to the 18th of December 2014
— "And I thought of this title as an attempt to explain the conceptual path that directs my work, the idea of offering a space that exceeds the vision of speed and contemporary images provoking critical reflections on forms, light, color and space ..." Corrado de GRAZIA
“Passing through/not moving” (in several places at the same position)
Exhibition engaging analog photographic technique and large size film.
Images in the space between appearances, in the relation between form and matter, in the variation of
our position in a given space is related to the atomic structure of our bodies. A man presence in the same
space that he can indentify as stable in a precise moment is not anymore recognisable as stable the very next
moment. This happens because when the matter which makes explicit our apparent form exists already in
If the electromagnetic waves prior to the mechanical capture are re-modulated on frequency leaps and
brought back to the simulacrum of a unique image (“Le simulacre n’est jamais ce qui cache la vérité, c’est
la vérité qui cache qu’il n’y a en a pas. Le simulacre est vrai.”,Jean Baudrillard, Simulacres et Simulations,Galilèe,
Paris,1981), in an instrumental lecture of this repositioning of matter (that can be done tentatively maintaining
the same parameters in forces emission), it will be only our action as a mistake, our formal imperfection, that
will produce a different datum of knowledge and the possibility of the restitution of an ‘aura’.
Therefore images of the unpredictability of our intervention. Therefore images about the desire to intervent
and act. That desire which has the aim of observing without the need of understanding, in the irreversibility
of an implosive space that push us near and far from the conscience- of- self, in the challenge of living each
and unique moment which has already stopped being, now.
