Performance and photography

2018

The performance, strictly connected to the photographic project and the digital installation, is an exploration of the obsessive necessity of appear and disappear at the same time through the photographic medium. Mainly inspired to the concept of self-portrait and disappearing, the performance explore the paradox of the photographic practice in relation to the identity and its fluidity. Self portrait, internet and various social accounts give us the possibilities to create and modify our identity and to choose what is possible to hide and what to show. Selection is fundamental in the creation of our identity and is one of the base of the digital world. The performance is an attempt to explore this process of selection around the identity creation of ourselves.
