The body is the focus of a recent research by Paolo di Giosia, author
always anchored to analogical photography and traditional print on baryta
paper in silver salt, that give his photos a timeless flavor.
A kind of suspension treceable throught the production of the artist in
which loneliness, exclusion, wandering and memory are central themes.
In the new work, abandoned places, marked by the patina of time,
changed in spare sets where nudity is part of a ghostly figure; an
appearance by fleeting boundaries, almost materialized from ancestral
rituals or imaginations produced by the diving force of desire.
The bodies taken from Paolo di Giosia are simulacra, sensitive
spokesman of secret, seductive machines built on the illusion to challenge
the false on its own ground: the rapresentation.
Spaces filled with riddles, in which bodies deny individuality, hide the
faces to flaunt a physicality that does not admit mediation, become places
of ceremonies, "fatal strategies" that catch the eyes.
