Divided Minds VI
Introduction by Veronica Liotti
The works displayed, belonging to the series The divided minds (2006-2008), are photographic diptychs composed of two images taken in different moments and places, often very distant from each other. The new reality they describe, having lost any possible reference to time or space, is released from the autobiographical contingency and allows everyone to give his/her own personal interpretation about its meaning.
Recurrent elements of this works are doors, windows, mirroring surfaces, open landscapes and by contrast indoor rooms. Simple and direct symbols that refer to ourselves - the inside - and to our relationship with the world - the outside - and with our own selves by means of our reflected image.
