Mannequins

“Mannequins”, Photography, 2015-2018, different sizes

 

The photography of those puppets simulating street workers or flag mans might be banal as a pure series. I see in these figures representations of the alter ego of the migrant workers - with their wishful dress code, their uniform and make up.

At the same time the workers consider these puppets as their other identity, a public visible personality, so they become their "Mannequins", uniform dressed, with a phantasy born by poor materials and basics, and therefore they appears as a sort of arte povera.
