This is an extract from Questions and Answers part of an exhibition called It’s All About Paradise II

 

In this moving image piece Questions and Answers I examine found objects, placing them in their traditional context and questioning their functions. My interest lies in nostalgia and ownership, exploring the boundaries between found objects and the ‘objective’ subject, subverting their established meaning and detachment. By animating objects that have lost their use or whose design has been replaced and modified by more sophisticated devices, I question the human relation with the past as an object or as the waste as well as interrogating the nostalgia that drives capitalism towards fetishism.

I thought I’d upload some stuff  I have done in the past. This is a show I was part of last year.

It’s called It’s All About Paradise 2. Here is a brief description of my work taken from the website.

Lorenza Ippolito interviews found objects, placing them in their traditional context and questioning their functions. Her interest lies in fetishism, nostalgia and capitalism, exploring the boundaries between found objects and the ‘objective’ subject, subverting their established meaning and detachment. By animating objects that have lost their use or whose design has been replaced by more sophisticated devices, Ippolito questions the human relation with the past as an object, the waste, and the nostalgia that drives capitalism towards fetishism.
