The work «The smuggler of images» is based on the idea of deconstruction and questioning the concepts of borders using the figure of a smuggler as symbol and allegory of a person who exceeds these limits and therefore ignores them
The work uses a labyrinthine narrative strategy with various levels of «reality» to create a common space in the time.
In the photo installation appear images from different geographical regions of the Italian border area to France, and converge with shots of the house of the fictitious smuggler that are located there, which suggests a common cartography for both protagonists and a way of thinking about history.
