The exhibition, curated by Chiara Oggioni Tiepolo and Sanni Agostinelli, presents the work of the visual artist Camilla Ferrari, who documented her journey to the territories of Sudan through a series of deeply evocative photographs and videos.
The new narrative shows the enchanting and complex beauty of Sudan, suspended between reality and dream, between light and shadow, between presence and absence. Ferrari photographed the territorial variety, interpreting it through his typical visual poetics, to return landscapes of the soul to the public. The lush green and deep blue of the Nile, the vast deserts, the infinite expanse of sand and sky that seems to melt into a single dreamlike vision. The artist also captured places of passage, restaurants for truckers, petrol stations, chai houses and markets, which become points of meeting, listening and meditation along the way.
