a series of
photographs shot at the Botanical
Gardens conceived for the
and modern art museum of Palermo,
where the the first exhibit took place.
These photographs, some taken with an old Polaroid from the 1970s, are confronting us with something greater than ourselves, suggesting a distant memory linked to the force of the elements of nature, perfect and fascinating. In these images the artist succeeds in capturing the “primordial” essence of nature, giving life to architectures of unimaginable beauty. They are a sort of 'carnet de voyage' into primordial nature, which includes plants that look like mountains, leaves that resemble prehistoric animals, tree barks that appear like a rivulet of a river in the desert or antique exotic fabrics.
