Wonderland Affair

I approached the Arctic undergoing its visual and scientific-literary charm.

In deepening my knowledge of it through anthropology and non-fiction texts, I get confirmation that halting my analysis at climate change and heavenly scenarios did not bring justice to this region, on which a huge amount of narrative remains too often rooted to hearsay, rhetoric or newspaper headlines; a land, in fact, celebrated as the ‘last paradise’ as much as a victim of colonial abuse and socially shared clichés.

Working with docu-fiction – entirely remotely – through found photography, manipulation and writing, I mixed legends and imaginary glimpses, in which I staged true events – even tragedies and environmental disasters – trying to give my version of Arctic, which starts from reality but where the line between retinal reality and fiction is blurred.
