Vision hysterical

  • Photographer
    Paolo Repetto

An artistic work done at some of the city of culture, politics, the most important religion in world stage, in the agora and cults of various ethnic groups, the artist takes possession of symbols constructed man for man hiding eye and by moving mechanical device from the name bomb war in their place. The work is presented to the user as a thinking image that ranges in improbable content putting upside down the values of true and false, alluding to basics ambiguous in contemporary photography. The viewer is drawn into an unnatural grotesque vision, but with deep content where live is divided into beauty and self-destruction, good and evil, wonder and disbelief.

Born in 1968 in Lavagna, Italy. His works deal with the empty place – the absence and presence – which takes possession of all places built by man and for man; abandoned places by means of an evocative interpretation become existential sets. The author searches and attentively selects these sets which correspond to his need for specific peculiarities. Once found, he begins his work as director and artist and creates a stratification of the elements: vivid coloures, dimmed red lighting, dark corners and hints of figures – they are almost ghost-like which guide one from empty to full memories.
