2021 / Fine Art
The aim of my project is giving my own interpretation of myths and legends linked to my motherland and, at the same time, seeking the inner fears of human beings. Folk tales, they live in our everyday life, through our gestures and habits: It is possible to find them in a crack from the ceiling, in a scream breaking the Silence of the woods, in my cat’s eyes staring at me at night.
Nicoletta Cerasomma is a pop surrealist photographer, based in Lucca, Italy, with a background in staged photography. Her work is bound to an ambiguous and cinematic image-making between reality and imagination. As visual artist, her approach to photography aims to provoke contemplation and a new redefinition of commonplaces through a playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny.
She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.
