Vita di Cosimo Satta (Life of Cosimo Satta)

[back to articles]

Pinhole photographs on sheet film - Palladium prints, 11½” x 16½”

This open series tells the life story of a fictive character, indirectly tied to the previous work La Giustizia Non Dorme. These images represent scattered pieces of the character’s life, often taken out of the contexts of time and logic. Due to the long exposure times of the pinhole camera, whch can be up to half hour, a mime has to perform the main role, trying to stay still for as long as he can.

Performers:

Cosimo Satta - Marco Olimpio
Viviana Foddis / the devil - Sonia Rosa Natante
