STATEMENT

Vertical layers e without which…? Sono collezioni di fotografie di corrispondenza strappata, inattesa e indesiderata, che ritiro giornalmente dalla buca delle lettere di mio padre, il quale -inconsapevolmente- ne ha incoraggiato l’invio a causa del suo indebolimento intellettivo. Da questo accumulo di posta, decostruisco i contenuti dal loro contesto originale fotografando i pezzi strappati dopo averli ricomposti e riorganizzati in ciascuna immagine, che trasformo in opere assemblandole in successione.

Vertical layers and without which…? are compilations of photographs taken of shredded, unsolicited mail that I collect daily from my father’s mailbox---junk mail that he unwittingly encouraged delivery of as his mind began to fail. From stockpiles of accumulated mail, I removed intended content from original context by deconstructing it and photographing the shredded pieces. I then modified and reorganized each image and embedded them into works that sustain one another with shared imagery, despite the distinctly varied disposition of each adaptation.
