2013 - 2020
Amarcord means "I remember" in Italian dialect. This is significant because my work is about memories, nostalgia and the forgotten. In other words: the past.
I percieve these photographs as little poems. I leave some room for them to evoacte.
Time passes, instants are ephemeral and what is left is only a memory replaced by others.
an abandoned space, isolated, can make us jump backwards into our lives, back towards a certain time. The smell of a room, objects unchanged, traces of a past that once existed but is now forgotten.
Everything has fallen, execept for the table and the curtain. Everything has changed. Some people died,others were born, life has passed, but the room is still there, year after year and no one came back.
With this project, it's as if I've returned to the attic of my childhood, plunging once more into the memories waiting to be found under a light blanket of dust.
as I entered these abandoned spaces, the sounds of the pas resurfaced, creating an atmosphere of total emptiness. I heard laughter, debate, arguments, children running..LIFE.
I collect memories . I travel into the past through spaces and testimonies. This work is a way of reviving totally abandoned spaces, of resurrecting the people who are no longer there, and of remembering; an exploration through the memories of an bygone era, reviving a distant past.
