Orsetti Ordinary Intimacy
Regular price €44,00
“Ordinary Intimacy is a series that collects photos taken over a decade. Looking for imprecise moments, those without expectation, those among ‘the things that happen’, it reveals a reality, where you think there is nothing to see.
Marginal, obvious things, transitory views and imperfect spaces are transformed into familiar memories in the eyes of the beholder.”
A series of photographs taken all over the world, instead of popular sites the photographer chose to focus on scenes and objects we might consider insignificant, but as this work proves, the opposite is true; Orsetti finds beauty and meaning in quiet little moments: the imprints left by a dusty football on a wall in Havana, Cuba, 3 brilliantly red and pink plastic chairs lined up on an empty street in Oporto, Portugal, or the green canopy of a sneaky palm tree peeking over a brick wall topped with barbed wire in Luderitz, Namibia, with an introduction by the artist in Italian and English, comes with two loose picture postcards with a handwritten message from the artist, hard cover, 20 x 25 cm, 84 pages, first ed., n.p. 2020
