CASTIGO

“CASTIGO” IS A PHOTOGRAPHIC SERIES INSPIRED BY THE STORY OF THE ORIGINAL SIN. THE PROJECT STARTS FROM THE ANALYSIS OF THE FACTS AND EVIDENCE AS REPORTED IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT THAT I TRIED TO VISUALLY REINTERPRET IN A PERSONAL AND IRONIC WAY, ADAPTING THEM TO OUR TIMES. INTERESTED IN THE SOCIAL DYNAMICS OF CONTEMPORARY LIFE I HAVE DRAWN FROM A PAST MORE THAN REMOTE TO INVESTIGATE THE PRESENT AND I CHOSE THIS OLD STORY, STIMULATED BY ITS FANTASTIC ASPECTS, TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND HOW THERE CAN BE REAL, IMAGINED AND INVENTED.
THE SEQUENCE UNFOLDS IN THE MAIN STAGES OF THE STORY: THE SUNRISE OF CREATION, THE EDEN, THE MAN, THE WOMAN, THE TEMPTATION AND THE JUDGMENT FROM WHICH EVOLVES A PERSONAL CRITICAL VIEW OF THE HUMAN AND EXISTENTIAL CONDITION OF MAN AND WOMEN TODAY, AS WELL AS THE LANDSCAPE, EVEN NARRATIVE VEHICLE. I LIKE TO THINK, AT THE END OF THE WORK, THAT EVERYTHING IS DUE TO A BIG DREAM OR HALLUCINATION ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF MAN AND WHAT HAS BECOME, AND SEE, IN THE END, IT IS THE ONLY CREATOR AND PUNISHER OF HIMSELF, UNABLE TO MOVE FORWARD AND PROTECT THEMSELVES, AS SHOULD A SPECIES THAT BOASTS OF HAVING THE HIGHEST FORM OF INTELLIGENCE.
