Vittoria Gerardi — Confine

Ends in about 2 months: September 16 → November 4, 2017

In Confine, Italian photographer Vittoria Gerardi presents her perception of the landscape, a visual and mental experience through Death Valley. Located in the eastern Californian desert, Death Valley is the lowest, driest and hottest area in North America.

The dazzling light, therefore the incapability of seeing is portrayed by the photographer by selecting portions of the negative, distilling fragments of the landscape and making them become symbolic lines between inconsistency and matter, almost as scars of light and time.

By using an alternative process in the darkroom, the photographer emphasizes the elements that make the landscape violent and extreme. The synergy of chemicals and the sensitive nature of paper give shape to peculiar tonalities.

Confine, or Horizon, is the intangible line that makes man reveal his limit and the illusion of going beyond it.
