PLAYTIME

Time is like a child playing with memories: the places are transformed, the proportions of reality change, different eras merge to create new possibilities. So when you pick up an object that you have not seen for years, you are dragged back in time and everything seems different.

 

Finding some of my old toys was the starting point to create this project, in which the places of my childhood are the stage for the appearance of giant fantasy characters.

 

The desire for escape present in the adolescent years (made clear by photos like that of the sailing ship in the olive grove) is replaced by the nostalgia of familiar places and of a more light-hearted era.
