SOFFITTI SCONOSCIUTI (Unfamiliar Ceilings)

Milan, 2018

Family members, friends, lovers and strangers are collected in a photo-album even though their bodies are not present. instead it is their disappearance that is recounted, silently observed from the ceilings. an instant catalogued with date, time and place.

The point of view of the photos, originally horizontal, is reversed in an upright position thanks to the suspension of the pillows positioned in the approximate distance between the bed and the ceiling.

A transparent fabric encloses the installation into a suspended bedroom while the viewers, who pass by, disappear as the bodies in the observed mattresses.

Unknown ceilings.

Indiscreet eyes of our sleep,
a silent voyeurism,
a blushing plaster of our motion,
too malicious sometimes,
too innocent at others.

A mute observer of the slow fading
of two bodies.
