TENEBRE 

Polaroid photographic prints, 420 mm x 520 mm each. Edition: 1

 

TENEBRE is a series of four large-scale, one-of-a-kind Polaroid photographs. The photographs appropriate paparazzi photographs of Pasolini, and crop them so as to focus only on the human gestures in the images. The images are exposed on Polaroid film (unique prints) with a very shallow contrast range so as to appear as if emerging from a dark and barely discernable field. This re-appropriation of paparazzi images are decontextualized in an attempt to re-direct them away from sensationalism towards the realm of the less overt, transforming the original images into something altogether antithetical to their original intent.
