the deep surface
(2012) series of 5 prints, 11x17 cm, onHahnemÜhle Fine Art Pearl 285 gsm paper.

This project is the result of a research on the self knowledge reached by the investigation of the body: it started from the study of skin’s signs as a manifestation of memory – and knowledge – different from the rational and mental one, and finally ended with a series of portraits in order to represent the body as it is, formally.
Different parts of the body are taken in consideration and the natural and symbolic approach the subject spontaneously has toward this parts; the basic idea is to made us aware of ourselves not through linguistic communication or psychologic inquiry but through skin, touch, the identification of our ancestral ‘who’.
The instinctive approach with intimacy means then intimacy itself on a personal, cultural and social level.
