Monica Carocci

MONICA CAROCCI uses the medium of photography to create images that transform reality by placing it in an indeterminate dimension that dematerialises it. With a material-based approach, the artist works directly on the black and white negative applying manipulations, abrasions, erasures, chromatic variations, to obtain a fluid result, never definitive, which she defines as “the projection of my thoughts, in a camera obscura”. She aims her lens at everyday things, marginal situations, desolate suburban landscapes – L’altranno (2006); Ad una certa ora (2005) – which the framing and toning turn into signs of an existential geography, in sequences of images suspended between sleep and waking. *She was born in 1966 in Rome, she lives and works in Turin.
