"Complice e amica della semioscurità, Irene Gittarelli mette in scena il suo mondo onirico e surreale, con scatti di gusto cinematografico che rivelano scene enigmatiche, frame di racconti interrotti che galleggiano, come rebus irrisolti, in una ricorrente penombra.
scatti che si compongono di vari istanti appartenenti a una normalità surreale, il cui leitmotiv è una luce tanto fioca e crepuscolare quanto tenace, perennemente presente, positivo lume di speranza che ne riscatta l'oscuro e malinconico senso di smarrimento e abbandono. "
"Irene Gittarelli, semi-darkness's loyal friend and accomplice, stages her onyric and surreal world, by means of cinematographic shoots, which reveal enigmatic scenes and frames of suspended tales, floating in the shadow like unsolved riddles.
A collection of moments. They all belong to a surreal and highly personal daily life, with the leitmotiv of a dim and yet persistent twilight, as to symbolize a positive glimmer of hope redeeming melancholic sense of loss of day-to-day reality."
Irene Gittarelli was born in Turin on October 13th, 1991 and she currently lives in Milan. Graduated from the Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti of Turin, she is now attending the Master of Photography at Accademia di Brera, in Milan. Gittarelli starts developing her passion for photography in 2005, learning the basics in Plinio Martelli’s studio and then creating a highly personal and surreal style, focused on use of lights and settings more than on the subjects themselves.
Gittarelli joins many collective exhibitions in locations like ARCOS – Museum of Contemporary Art of Benevento, Acaya Castle in Lecce, Fondazione Opera Campana dei Caduti in Rovereto, XXVI International Book Expo in Turin, Museum of Resistance in Turin, Genova contemporanea 2015.
