Elisa Sighicelli

Turin, 1968 

After studying in London, Sighicelli’s work has been extensively exhibited in Italy and abroad. Known for her experimental approach in photography, Sighicelli merges materials that have different tactile properties and textures, to analyze the ways in which reality reflects itself. In the exhibited works, she examines ancient statues such as Aphrodite and the Farnese Bull to investigate the body representation and its objectification, violence and desire. Printed directly on marble, Untitled (8990) and Untitled (9015) embedded the materiality of antique Roman sculptures: it is no longer an image of a marble object, it becomes marble.
