NUVOLA PROJECT PORTRAIT

Genius Loci.

Gaia described the day dedicated to the portrait as if the spirit of the place had welcomed us for the birth of projects, synergies and new friendships. A sort of Peace Pact between Art and Nature.

In the heart of the Ninfa’s Gardens I photographed Massimo and Gaia, a couple of artists who together created the Nuvola Project, an intelligent and interactive installation that communicates with man, reminding him that his relationship with nature, as the environment of his life, it is an existential bond governed by continuous interconnection. I have always been sensitive to issues related to the environment and sustainability, this prompted me to contact the artist couple and involve them in my project.

They posed in the middle of November immersed in cold water, with enthusiasm, the lively gaze and full of energy. The magical place of the Gardens literally bewitched them, as I was the first day I visited them.

Each of us has maintained a perfect balance: me with the easel and the lights, Gaia and Massimo with their legs immersed in the slippery pond in synergy and respect with that ecosystem of flora and fauna that silently observed us.

BIO

Sara has been dedicating herself to photography and photographic calligraphy since 2006. She matured the artistic matrix from her father, musician and composer, who led her to explore not only the world of theater, to which she dedicated herself for several years both as an interpreter as a stage photographer, but also of music, studying classical music theory and playing bass for several years, as well as cinema, influenced by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia where her father worked as a sound engineer.

In addition to the various courses on photographic techniques and workshops dedicated to travel reportage, he attended the training promoted by the MoMA on photography as a means of individual artistic expression, as a technique for exploring and documenting the reality as well as a tool for communication and criticism of society and our culture. Subsequently, driven by an interest in history that draws on photojournalism as a primary source, she followed the course on the use of images, films and their historical interpretation in the 20th century with the University of London & Royal Holloway.

Among the activities followed, Sara has curated various photographic backstage works, the last of these at the Macro Museum in Rome. After having increased her knowledge, she has also matured her style thanks to the continuous and daily training of the artist Alessandro Bavari.

United by photography as an expression of art, as well as by their personal bond, together they created the book Kill the Covid! a rural horror photographic mockumentary set in Italy, faithful to their artistic, visionary and provocative style.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The photographic choice oriented towards Reportage and Street Photography, features strictly black and white calligraphy. Inspired by the language of the Hungarian director Béla Tarr, Sara Aliscioni offers images made of symbolism, drama and poetry in an objective but at the same time sentimental interpretation, describing the harsh reality that sees man at its center in familiar and everyday contexts. The common thread is always the search for beauty even when what surrounds the subject is decadent, dark and forgotten.
