The work of Rachele Maistrello (1986) has been inspired by marginal stories and minimal rituals that the artist rediscovers and appropriates through the use of photography, performance, video and written texts.
With The Hidden Shapes project, realised in 2021, Maistrello revisits the particular situation of the lockdown period through images of a “symbiotic” seabed, animated by the voices of the beings that inhabit it. Through images, full of a strong sense of intimacy, relating to an apnoea experience with clear psychological connotations, Maistrello proposes a journey of immersion and at the same time of listening. The Hidden Shapes represents the unknown and the incomprehensible that one may be confronted with.
