“Filamenti” wants to describe a journey on the work around the world as a representation of the dedication hidden behind tradition, fatigue and also behind the repetition of ordinary gestures as the result of the experience of a family, a community, of entire villages where time seems to have stopped.
“Filamenti” is also a timeless and spaceless story, it’s a no-place where the arts and crafts evoke traditions and experiences though the eyes of the author. The selections of shots presented in “Filamenti” is the result of a search for authenticity that Francesca Termine has found in her many travels around the world made with her inseparable camera. The no-place exists between Guatemala, Burma, Mexico, Vietnam and Laos.
This project is a full experience that leaves imprints: each shot is sensory, a lens on the attention to details and craftsmanship, to the rhythm of the hands, to the fatigue of the arms, to the concentration of the gaze and on the slowness.
“For me photography is exchange. Especially during my travels, I feel quenched my thirst for photography – far away from my everyday life, from my habits. I like to immerse my self in the diversity of places and traditions losing myself in all these new sensations. This is where my shots become a journey through the journey”.
- Francesca Termine
The exhibition will be accompanied by a sonorization.
