Tornando a casa

Alessandra Spranzi


From a collection of magazines printed in the 1960s, Spranzi selects images of middle-class interiors – bedrooms and living rooms furnished in the latest fashion, kitchens equipped with innovative appliances – that embody the dream of the Italian middle class in the years of the economic boom.

The artist intervenes on the photographs – taken out of their context – introducing a disturbing element (a flame) into the quiet atmosphere of the house, which is thus transformed into a claustrophobic and hostile environment. (From Micamera’s website)
