2010-2011. Archival inkjet prints. 64 elements. Installation
Ritratto condiviso (Shared Portrait) stems from my photographic portrait taken by an American artist, Barbara Ganley. It developed following a series of questions about the strategies of visibility sought after by artists and about the possibility of relationships and gatherings offered by the network. I asked 64 people to produce something creative on the surface of an enigmatic photographic square measuring 10×10 cm, which I had cut out of the original photograph. None of them knew the subject from which the square had been taken. 64 micro stories, which came into contact during the search for visibility, recreated the portrait in the end.
