Unfinished Me is an ongoing exploration of self perception in relation with foreign sight. The project plays with the idea of portraiture rearranging the role of what is concealed and what is in plain sight.
The process involves a series of acts in order to occult different body parts and face expressions, allowing only to guess what is depicted in the pictures.
The photos are at the same time portraits and something different and the relation between visible and concealed is melting in a kind of double tension. On one hand what is in plain sight looks heightened and the subject appears exposed and vulnerable at the other people’s mercy. On the other hand there is always something that escapes the sight and the subject apparently seems to be protected and sheltered.
It is like catching a glimpse behind a curtain and at the same time not be able to observe the totality of what is in front.
Diego Brambilla is an Italian artist, based in Zürich, Switzerland. His work is an intimate and personal reflection on the relationship between human and nature. He blends real and imaginary, stages fictional scenarios, and experimentally combines photography with installations and sculptures. Diego's pictures are dry and essential: they are inward landscapes, states of mind, atmospheres full of mystery and uneasiness, distance and solitude.
