autoritratto (self-portrait) is a series of shots representing skin fragments of the author herself. This work tries to reflect on our contemporary time, on the concepts of portrait and face as tools for structuring individual identities. The realistic sculptures, made of silicon and realized with a direct casting technique, give shape to a skin which is then captured as it was a still life subject. The face in its totality is parceled out, details gain importance and ambiguity takes over ther clarity. Photography ri-mediates the sculptures that cannot be assayed by the viewer: the perception of the image superimpose itself on the subject, creating a sheer illusion. The human need to keep faces alive since ancient times -through funeral masks or effigies- later  makes way for photography: it operates by the imprinting reality on a surface, too. What does the face represent nowadays? In autoritratto the present ri-mediates the past, while the constant link between media - here mimetically employed - unearths the plurality of the self.
