PHOTOGRAPHY AS AN OBJECT AND MATTER
Print on paper and plexiglas
103 x 75 x 20 cm
Blast Wave is an installation whose main character is the photography by Serena Gallorini. The photography of the woman’s scarred and headless body is interpreted by Santanni. There are two examples: one is printed behind Plexiglas, the other one “a vivo” is positioned with spacers at a
distance of 30 cm from the previous one as if it was floating in the air. The photo a vivo was broken by the artist with a firm act deriving from the desire of rebirth and freedom of the women from contemporary stereotypes.

The artist draws on her body an imaginary scar with the lipstick. Serena Gallorini’s picture becomes alive in the transparency of the acetate through a thick net of linen threads. The study in small dimensions with the photo in wooden rods shows how the picture of the image of the body is the topic of the artwork itself.

Fette di Limone racconta il corpo della donna segnato da eventi traumatici e dalla malattia, sublimato in una rinascita gioiosa e catartica.
In the current social representation we experience a void, an intrinsic inability in the contemporary collective consciousness of giving back an image to these bodies that overcome the ideal aesthetic and artificial model celebrated today. Lemon Slices describes the woman’s body scarred by traumatic events and diseases, sublimated into a joyful and cathartic rebirth.
