Questa Pianura

Paola de Pietri

Exhibition from september 3rd to october 24th 2015

For this unseen series, Questa Pianura (2004/2014/2015…), she roamed through this wide plain of her childhood, where she still lives and which is still an agricultural territory, even though it has suffered drastic transformations these past fifty years – between agrarian restructuring and intensive suburban development.

To make this « flat country » (Questa Pianura) visible, she took portraits of what is still living there: old farms remains and a few lone trees, that she chose to document through big images with elegant shades of grey. This wide landscape, where the horizon in endless, seems haunted by the mankind history and by a bygone era, told through these abandoned architectures.
