the theatre of the mind is a video-photographic project based on trust, focused on the exploration of oneself through conversations with people, as a means of enrichment, discovery, and acceptance.
I am guided by intuition. I want to explore their inner worlds and determine if they resonate with mine at that moment.
I aim to discuss the meaning of life, the lies they might have told themselves, their hidden secrets (which can sometimes be painful), their childhood, life, sex, what keeps them awake at night, love, their fears, their depth, and the lives of us simple human beings. These are unique stories, fragments of lives that represent humanity. But most importantly, 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 the English language with English and Italian subtitles. English subtitles have been curated by me and Peter Dixon.
The topics covered include crossdressing, the Islamic religion, adolescent depression and violence, gender dysphoria, the creation of an alter ego, art performance, and the fantasies represented by a six-year-old girl.
