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 photographer, based in Lucca, Italy, with a background in staged photography. Her work is bound to an ambiguous and cinematic image-making between reality and imagination. As visual artist, her approach to photography aims to provoke contemplation and a new redefinition of commonplaces through a playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny. She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.
