Entering from the main door of Fornelli you get lost into narrow medieval alleyways that lead to beautiful gaps, infinite landscapes of valleys and mountains framed by the walls and the houses.
Alberto Selvestrel came across these images of lights and stones, mountains and deep green color, and decided to embark on a trip to Italy in search of places with a majestic strength to photograph and elaborate in an installation spread throughout the village.
His photographic research is tinged by a philosophical concept: the artist has articulated his project around the idea that the perception we have is always fragmented and illusory, everything is actually one single thing that goes beyond the partial perception we have in our subjectivity.
Inside the Municipal Auditorium, Selvestrel installed hundreds of snapshots taken during his trip to Italy, ending to Fornelli, single fragments that make up a single story. Outdoors, walking along the alleyways of the old village, large-format photographs interact with the surrounding architecture and landscape in a game of contrast and attraction.
