He Grew Up In The Fog 28 October 2022 - 01 November 2022
The project develops in a personal and profound introspective research through a deconstruction and reconstruction of memory, born from an urgency to oppose a situation of discomfort that began in the post-adolescent age and continued over the years.
A malaise with regard to a past time, which it seems to me that I have not lived or escaped from it; I have very fragmented memories in my mind that dissolve, not distinguishing reality from imagination. Research and revelation of a time, where emotions such as sadness, shame, anxiety, restlessness, nostalgia, have fed in me a sense of constant loss.With the images I created my own personal map to orient myself and continue further, the past and the future are placed on the same level giving life to a form of continuous present.This work has allowed me to find a key to relate to that tormented self and forgive him.
My works have a strong vision in the approach to life and my daily life, a continuous interest in what surrounds me, deepening themes such as memory, time and the connections of my personal stories, I question the conditions of appearance of images, representations and ideas in the context of the contemporary visual culture in which they normally operate. The ones I live every day, the stories I want to tell, are not returned as they are, I am not interested in the pure satisfaction of visual aesthetics, mine is a deeper interest, I need to dig inside myself and rework everything to transform it into a form that is suggestive, evocative, more than explicit and complete.
Angelo Bonetti (1976, Turin, Italy) is a visual artist who works with photography, mainly a self-taught photographer who over the years has pursued and developed his own language.
Bonetti creates works that generate different contents, associations and meanings that come into conflict. Space becomes time and language becomes image. His works have a strong vision in the approach to life and its everyday life, a continuous interest in what surrounds him, deepening themes such as memory, time and the connections of his personal stories, questioning the conditions of appearance of images, representations and ideas in the context of the contemporary visual culture in which they normally work.
