Corrispondenze by Alessandra Sarritzu
Cyanotype on canvas
Corrispondenze born the desire to relate images retrieved through old family films to VHS and the natural element. These, selected and isolated, appear as redundant traces of a particular place, the harsh Sardinian lands, in an intimate view of the elements of those natural landscapes in which I grew up. It’s a project linked to my childhood and to the concept of memory, belonging, identity, bonding, fragmentation and time. By reflecting on my origins, I manipulate this personal archive and develop transfigured images, which represent a part of my life experience that becomes visible and can be read as a kind of self-portrait. This archive is to be understood both as a place where one can activate the present through memory and as a place where one can reflect on the role played by images, in particular photographic pictures.
