Nicoletta Cerasomma

Nicoletta Cerasomma is an Italian conceptual artist whose work is bound up in an ambiguous and cinematic imagemaking that borders the real and the fantastic.

Her approach provokes contemplation and reconfiguration of commonplace subjects via playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny. 

The characters are women from Lucca, Italy, and represent the feminine figure that shapes their lives with their own will. Doing so, they deprive themselves of their own identity and become symbolic icons.

The mystery that surrounds them lets the viewer enter an imaginary world, made up of ancestral fears and archetypes.
