Gloria Matarazzo

From my dreams
“From my dreams is a collection created between 2019 and 2020. It could also be called: My most intimate self.”

About the work:

The series includes photos taken inside my studio, photographs from my personal archive, as well as images found on the web. I found all this material very useful as it allows me to work with complete freedom and create a new image according to the different dreams and thoughts that encompass relationships, affections, the relationship with space, imagination, intimacy; the small, the simple, and the complex, as well as certainty and uncertainty, the intangible and the ephemeral.

A Continuous Journey:

When I was a child, my father always told the story of how his mother used to take him and his siblings to the port of Buenos Aires to breathe in the air that came from the old world. This image of my grandmother with her small children beside her was always very powerful for me because of all that it implied. Over the years, I’ve come to understand what it means for anyone who must leave their place of origin and go in search of other worlds, other destinies. Descending from Italians and French, I now revisit that story they wove, traveling back and forth across the ocean.
