A house. Four walls. Two souls. Eyes that look absent, lost in a labyrinth made of different everyday life. Lips tired of fake smiles. Hands that do not touch but that retain the distance made by an existence that becomes resistance to a life that is adrift. Paper boats in a sea of ​​tears. There are a thousand ways to say goodbye. The worst is stand.

Nicoletta Cerasomma is a pop surrealist artist with a background in staged photography. After studying photography she realized her love for storytelling and she focused on production of nuanced photographic tableaux. Her work is highly conceptual and complex: she incorporates archetypes and cultural iconography with satirical narratives inspired by the collective unconscious. Leaning into the visual language of pop surrealism, she stages narrative compositions that expose the underbelly of modern life.
