Tears Underwater

Inkjet printing on tissue paper, light boxes, wooden table, text on wall


Tears Underwater was born from a personal path of psychoanalysis. The images displayed on the table converse with the wall text, creating abstract and intimate connections. The short story of a fish that is hardly able to emerge on the surface is a metaphor of the unconscious and operates as glue and interpretation for the photographs.
Symbols, evocations and cross references between the images contribute to devise the environment and atmosphere useful to tell about the unconscious which architecture, inevitably, can be understood just through a sensory, psychic and intuitive experience. Within the presentation of the work, the light boxes illumination assumes a significant value, becoming itself introspective allegory: the light illuminates unaware shadow areas, where the ego moves and shows himself.
