003: Carlotta Manaigo
Study 003 byCarlotta Manaigo
For the third edition of Exploring Time, Italian born photographer Carlotta Manaigo conducts a study of characters in time. Divided into two parts; photography and video. The stills focus on the relationship between two young adults and investigate themes of identity, duality and androgyny, narrating their coming of age. The geometric lines of the urban architecture gradually blend into a natural landscape in which they find liberation, we now feel their skin, their breath, the formality becomes physical.
The video introduces other generations, a young boy and an older gentleman, captured in repetitive moments of everyday life, in the house, around the table, outdoors. It plays with the passage of time, the ticking of a watch mirrors other circular shapes which become reoccurring elements, as to embody the eternal cycle of life.
