Description of the project:

In this set of photos I bring objects from my home setting (a paper glass, a plate, a food) with neutrality and clarity, as if my gaze is an automatic process aimed at capturing the essence of things – freed from personal connotations and the superstructures of meaning – and translating their relationship with reality.

Isolated on an empty table from the chaotic context of the present, these objects are photographed and operated with a minimal way to ensure that my subjective view does not interfere with the representation by modifying the objective nature of the elements photographed.

I shifted towards a reality where the objects assert their presence in terms of their lack of vitality and their purely iconic value.

I saw that as an only way of comprehending objects with the mind, employing the “ technologically unconscious” of the photographic medium, which structures the image independently of a subjective view and brings forth the natural formulation of reality, isolated in time, rather than a constructed version.

In this way potential of each object is amplified in relation to space, in terms of both its formal and aesthetic characteristics and in its emotional and intimist aspects.

And the result is a sort of decongestion of the gaze, enabling objects to be seen in a new, different light, without any kind of conditioning: a linguistic exercise that reflects on art and the awareness of the world that it can offer.

Description of the project:

To which extent the outcome of our life depends on our own willpower, tenacity and how much is instead determined by the fact that we are born in a specific country?
I was born and raised in the country that is outside of the European Union, and I had no idea how difficult it can be to stay and work inside of the European Union and what kind of problems you can have on the border and with a police.
Being unable to stay in the European Union’s country, I came back to my country and at that moment I felt like a plant.
Planted where I didn't choose and growing where I didn't want to grow, without the possibility to place my roots anywhere.
I was wondering how much any one of us has anything to do with self-determination? And if anyone of us has a possibility to spread his areal of existence with the help of the wind same as plants can, then once when you cut a plant and put it in a herbarium its the same as to chain a human.
