the theatre of the mind is a video-photographic project based on trust, on the exploration of oneself through conversations with people as enrichment, discovery and acceptance.
I am driven by intuition. I want to explore their inner worlds and know whether they reflect mine, at that moment.
I want to talk of the meaning of life, lies they might have told themselves, their hidden secrets, which sometimes hurt, their childhood, life, sex, what keeps them up at night, love, their fears, their depth, of us simple human beings. unique stories, fragments of lives that represent humanity. But most of all I want to get to know them.
the theatre of the mind is an installation project consisting of photographs and seven videos.
Each video has a duration ranging from 25 to 55 minutes, for a total of 5 and a half hours.
The videos are in English language with English and Italian subtitles. English subtitles curated by me and Peter Dixon.
Topics covered are crossdressing, the Islamic religion, adolescent depression and violence, gender dysphoria, the creation of an alter ego, art performance and the fantasy represented by a six-year-old girl.
