Reflecting on the ambiguous relationship between
reality and representation, Andrea Aquilanti experiments
by combining traditional techniques and
analogue and digital technologies. An image from
an engraving by Giovanni Battista Piranesi, modified
by the artist with drawing, is projected on the walls
of the room. A camera intercepts the shadows of
the visitors who attend this dramaturgical work,
suggesting a sophisticated play of shadows and sequences.
Landscapes and monuments – which
reveal specific artistic and historical matrices – are
collected in the Archive of Memory.
