"Southern dream" is a work on memory, an inner reconnaissance of places that belong to my island, Sicily, intended as the land of collective myth. It is a rewinding of the tape of memories through the awareness of past time that erodes memory in a continuous work of subtraction and makes it dreamy by crystallizing it into dreamlike visions that become personal and at the same time collective visions.

The elements that make up the images become small poetic fragments seen through the lens of time, blurred memory, emotion and amazement. Fragment after fragment, image after image, the emotion reappears intact retracing, first visually and then inwardly, the known places, returning them in dream-like visions.

Sergio Giannotta

Sergio Giannotta è nato a Catania nel 1965 dove ha frequentato il Liceo Artistico Statale e l’Accademia di Belle Arti (Sezione Pittura). Dopo iniziali esperienze nel campo della pittura, si accosta alla fotografia alla fine degli anni novanta, elaborando un personale linguaggio poetico in cui tecnica e memoria si fondono dando vita a visioni ricche di magiche suggestioni . Utilizza sia la tecnica digitale che analogica in maniera indifferente. I suoi lavori si trovano in numerose collezioni private. Attualmente vive e lavora a Catania.
