"Born in Sicily in 1984. Studied Architecture, Modern Literature, Art History and Photography between Italy and France. I prefer to work in interface territories.
My work negotiates with images. It takes them seriously, it doubts them, sometimes it mocks them. Yet, images resist to the artist’s will, they are bent or misunderstood, they get used – as we get used to them. I am interested in cultural heritage and the nation building process. My work is the site where I confront my point of view on such process to challenge the main narratives that drive it. Digging through planning, cultural policies and archaeological research, I observe the mechanisms that power uses to build national myths. My work causes a traffic of fabricated images, of documents, texts and found pictures that overlaps on these myths and – sometimes – they erode it.
I am an artist, a researcher, a photographer, a scholar, a publisher, an archaeologist. But above all this, I am a permanent stranger."

Studied Architecture, Modern Literature and Art History at the Università degli Studi di Catania, Italy. In 2012 I obtained a Photography Master of Arts at the École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière (ÉNSLL) in Paris, France. Between 2012 and 2016, Photography Teacher Assistant at the European School for Visual Arts (ÉESI) in Poitiers, France. In 2014 I took part to the Zines of the zone nomad library tour throughout the European continent. Currently Teacher at Université Paris VIII for the Photography and Contemporary Art MA. Participant of the Trauma&Revival (Bozar, Pushkin and kim?) and ENGAGE (Viafarini) programmes in 2017.
I am an artist, a researcher, a photographer, a scholar, a publisher, an archaeologist. But above all this, I am a permanent stranger.
