Blacks and whites alternate in an endless standoff, beams of light highlight the black figures whereas white silhouettes emerge from the sticky black.
Faces and places narrated by a strong expressiveness that leaves no room for delicate nuances, shattering the sign, crumbling it, pulverising it.
A nonstop conflict that tells about suffering places and bodies.
A story about contemporary practices, torture as a tool of annihilation, the total suspicion of the rule of law. A practice which today lies behind the rhetoric of the clash of civilisations, a rhetoric ending in itself.
Elena Guidolin does not deliver a misleading aesthetic pleasure for the violated bodies, but she is neither rhetorical in restoring the tragedy, she chronicles the lives and bodies as battlefields.
With BeccoGiallo she publishes a book on the topic of torture, from Giulio Regeni to the facts of the Diaz school in Genoa in 2001, from Abu Ghraib to Italian fascism.
