DIARIO DI UNA BAMBOLA (2012)
film/video art work, TRT 03′42″, without dialog, b/w, PAL 4:3, (Italy 2009/2012)
The memories of the dolls are weaved within the pages of a book, where – as invisible writers – they record thoughts and remembrances: they, and the reflection of their images and unrealizable fantasies, delineate the experiences and the ideal copy of the world of the arms that used to hug them. Witnesses and heroines of a melting and repetition of stories and persons, the dolls are at the same time the performers and the transmitters of these memories.Diario di una bambola – Canto I is based on my first moving image work Diario di una bambola which consisting solely analogue photographs, and is inspired by Chris Marker’s work La Jetée. Diario di una bambola contains only one brief shot (of a woman holding and breastfeeding her infant) originating on a motion-picture camera, and found in Italy’s Amateur Film Archive in Bologna. Diario di una bambola – Canto I consists entirely the first work but is shrouded by moving images captured on an audio tape, and manipulated in real-time. The tape degrades over time and becomes unplayable which is contrary to our idea of photographs whose origin is the manifestation of a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
„(…) Everything is mediated through the mind, translated, filtered, allegorized, twisted, even falsified by it. We are enveloped in a cloud of changing and endlessly shifting images.“ C.G. Jung
