106 Statale Jonica

2008-2010

[Photographs, polaroids, map of the Sud Italy, postcards, 1 roadsign]

Project in collaboration with the photographer Filippo Romano


The "106 Statale Jonica" is a mixed media installation composed of a video and a series of polaroids, postcards, roadsigns, and objects collected along the Ionian coast, in the Southern regions of Puglia and Calabria, 491 kilometers along which the striking beauty of nature, with its Mediterranean colours and perfumes, shares the landscape with painful devastation perpretated by Mafia and organized crime. Illegal houses and surreal unfinished architectures, a sci-fi landscape inhabited by generations of people trying to lead a normal life. "106 Statale Jonica" is a critical postcard of their everyday.

"106 Statale Jonica" è un'installazione composta da un video, una serie di polaroids, cartoline, insegne stradali e oggetti collezionati lungo la costa Ionica, tra Puglia e Calabria; 491 km lungo la natura, con i colori e profumi che convivono con la devastazione del paesaggio perpetrata dalle Mafie, e dal crimine organizzato. Case illegali, architetture incomplete, un paesaggio abbandonato dalle nuove generazioni, in cerca di vita normale. "106 Statale Jonica" è una cartolina di una quotidianità' in crisi.
