    Oriana Majoli

TESTAE (lat. testa-ae, amphora, vase) is a collection of very special, human vases.The body becomes a vase and is nude, in ceramic, resting on a pedestal in front of a 19th century tapestry, like a valuable furnishing accessory. The "vase" is a container of lifeblood for the individual herbal, floral and arboreal essences that fill it, adorn it, complete it and communicate it.The series consists of 18 polaroids,worked afterwards with the application of the natural essences that were dried and treated beforehand, in order to manage their shapes, textures and colour shades individually.

Oriana Majoli was born in 1979 in southern Italy, in the province of Salerno.After several shorts stories in digital, it ends in 2017, three years after the first shot, the project LVMEN OBSCVRA, followed by De Profundis(2019),the project instant polaroid PERSONA(2019), the work entitled NIHIL(2019) and her last work TESTAE(2020).
