L’Odore delle Ossa, unlike previous works which were purely photographic, is composed of a short film, made with artists Andrea Pregi and Fanny Oliva. A portrait of Roberta Segata’s homeland, in this project, the uncontaminated nature of the Fiemme Valley and surrounding areas are the main characters, along with the human figure, in what can be described as a real journey. Beyond the hedge, the photographic series which accompanies the short film, represents instead the work from which it all stemmed, the first chapter, dedicated to “illness” and “change”.
The dialogue between man and nature is fundamental; a single breath, completely united, indissolubly bonded. Like all of her works, this latest project represents an emotional rather than factual story.
We find ourselves suspended between the real and the ironical, with subtle dualistic games and perspectives, involved in the ‘spoken but unspoken’ position of finding our own personal interpretation.
Roberta Segata’s work combines the disciplines of photography and video with her role of dancer and performer. Each shot is an event. The images are centred on the correlation between subject and background, producing unexpected results. There is no photomontage, just the demands on the body of “being” in extreme and improbable situations. Reflections on the relationship between man and nature – made up of contrasts and contradictions, yet familiar and inseparable.
The inauguration will be held on Thursday June 11th 2015, from 6pm to 9pm.
