Fata Morgana

Alessia Rollo

2015 - 2017

Fata Morgana is the name of a complex mirage that distorts objects and then fades very quickly. The Fata Morgana is visible from my region in the southern part of Italy, Salento, and it gives the illusion to see Albanian mountains from the Adriatic Sea: but to me it represents a powerful metaphor of contemporary geopolitical situation.

Salento, like all of Europe, has recently become a false place of wonder and hope for people who are fleeing from Africa or Meddle East.

This project represents my willingness to create a visual complexity around these topics so relevant in the contemporary European scenario.
