Lucia Barbagallo

Location: London

My practice focus on the physical exploration of landscapes and its interpretation, by photography and film.
The notion of Now and Here are the pivot around which I move and I stare the gaze. I am moving between reality and imagination, visions and facts. All my works reflecting around the experience of living the spaces and experiment the differences and enjoy the displacement.
Specifically, through a contemplative approach, a political glance and a specific construction of the images as scenery, as something I love to control in all details I am discovering the relationship between me and landscape, landscapes and atmosphere. My interest is living, as a person, the time and spaces in order to make stories around. The story should be interpreted as the negotiation between imagination and reality, visual poetry of the real political.
Discovering, Exploration and Walking are pragmatic form to measuring ourself with the lands Its is a practice that stimulate the imagination, the faculty to think what is still not exist or change the existent.
Art practice is something help me to deepen issues, query about some questions and live truthfully
now and here.
