I Do Not Want to Desappear

  • Photographer
    Nicoletta Cerasomma

The project “I do not want to desappear” aims to recovery the meaning of the words “Ghost” meant as apparition, a supernatural presence that shows itself through nature. A flutter, a sky full of stars, a flap, the wind between wildflowers. The artist still works on diptychs and female figures, as she has done in her latest projects, following the idea of comparing different elements, in this specific one nature and soul, the spirit of dead women: blurry images reveal their stories, hidden in the cosmos, that the audience is invited to guess.

Nicoletta Cerasomma is a pop surrealist photographer, based in Lucca, Italy, with a background in staged photography. Her work is bound to an ambiguous and cinematic image-making between reality and imagination. As visual artist, her approach to photography aims to provoke contemplation and a new redefinition of commonplaces through a playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny. She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.
