Ogni dove – Al principio era una isla

Wherever – At the beginning, it was an island


Mixed media: photography, sculpture, sound

“Ogni dove. Al principio era una isla” is an ongoing research project about the relation between landscape, desire, and belonging. It focuses on the visualization of “places of affection”, real or imagined dream places, where we find our inner landscape.

Starting from my origins, I was first investigating on the imaginary of Sicily viewed from outside, by collecting interviews and photos of Sicilians in Belgium.
Over time, the project unlinked from the concept of home as the place of origin and, it extended to any place.
In a more abstract sense, it’s now a personal and plural voice speaking about unconditional love.
The work, still in progress, will be structured into two parts: a mixed media installation and a website.
