An ordinary story

The living together creates a parallel world, where public and private end up to be somehow intertwined. Through these self-portraits, I explored the introspective potentialities of the performance, conceiving the relationship with my partner as a journey, a creative reciprocity amongst the one, the other and the space.

Starting from our own experience as a couple, I adopted an absurd language to metaphorically investigate possible dynamics that may occur within couples’ relationships and everyday lives. The presence of specific books in each image aims to suggest a further narrative layer and a bridge between the ordinary and the extra-ordinary.
We set symbolic scenes conceiving the couple and the living together as stories, as “spaces” of utopias and dystopias, of dreams and unforeseen circumstances, of support, contrast and role-shifts.

Questioning the possible links amongst the absurd, the oneiric, the everyday objects, the everyday spaces and the inner dynamics, we travelled throughout an ordinary story where all the imaginable can be dreamt, set and performed.
