About The Artwork

C-Print on Fujicolor Crystal Archive, smooth and glossy, with a white border of 1,5cm ca (print size is 50x50cm, including white border), numbered and signed Analogue Color Photography, 6x6 format, made with the multiple exposure technique and printed in the darkroom It will be shipped rolled, securely inside a shipping tube This work has been selected in the 2017 Group Exhibition "(Con) fusioni. Inusuale mostra sull’incompiuto", Lanciano, Italy, based on the theme of the unfinished, incomplete work. DESCRIPTION The same subject (the Torre del Valico of Forca di Penne) photographed from two different points of view, together with a tree located near the tower, are the origin of the triple exposure visible in this image. This multiple exposure operation gives us an effective photograph in capturing and documenting the intermediate stages of a creative process which normally ends with the final choice of composition and shot which will give the final aspect of a completed photographic image. For this reason, the photograph presented here cannot be considered properly defined / finished or completed in itself, on the contrary it must be seen as a fragment of a path that still remains open and indeterminate in its final outcome. The proposed operation, conceptually, rhymes by contrast with the condition of the main subject of the photo, the tower: the creative process of which this image is testimony opens the way towards the possible materialization on the photographic paper of the tower, on the contrary the tower in itself, today, is simply disappearing, as it falls apart. Just when an image is forming in the camera through my gaze and my lens, the matter of the tower slowly, but inexorably, disintegrates and vanishes (complicit institutional neglect and ineptitude, true causes of decline and condemnation to the oblivion of this monument). The fog, of which the whole scenario is pervaded, in a certain sense can be considered the medium that facilitates and visually allows the implementation of this cross transition: from the material to the imaginary and vice versa.

Pamela Testa (b. 1980) is an italian artist living and working in Abruzzo, a beautiful region located between sea and mountains. She is an emerging photographer who loves Art in all its forms and her images are in some ways inspired by Japanese traditional culture and aesthetic. She graduated in Japanese Language, Art and Culture at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and during her studies she was very impressed by Shintoist and Buddhist Philosophy, above all the concept of Impermanence and the principle of Interdependence. It could be said that in her works there is what in Japanese is called “Mono no Aware”, an expression that literally is translated as “the pathos of things” and indicates that the beauty of things is in their impermanence. Not by chance, she defines photography (and above all her instant photography) like a Japanese haiku, because in its frames it contains the beauty of a fragment of life, unique and irreplaceable. She is a self-taught photographer and in 2001 she bought her first analogue camera starting the collection of her frames of the world.  In April 2017 she took part in the Fahrenheit39 Festival in Ravenna, Italy, with her first photo-book “A Quiet Place to Live”, a collection of instant images she made in 2016. She was also selected in the online section of “Circuito Off” European Photography Festival 2017, with her work about time and memory.  In August 2017 she has been interviewed by Underexposed Magazine on her photographic work. In November 2012 she took part in a selected collective exhibition of instant photography at the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin, within the framework of the 5th European Month of Photography.
