Paola Pasquaretta took her degree in Visual Arts from IUAV in Venice and continued her studies attending the MFA in Imaging Arts-Photography at Fondazione Fotografia Modena.

The installation L’orizzonte degli eventi – lp (2014) moves between photography, performance and sculpture: a hole connecting two rooms between two unused buildings serves as the pretext to stage a little performance from which three photographs originate. Together with a number of objects found inside the building, the body partially hidden by the wall takes on the forms of antropomorphic sculptures.  Composition, matter, dynamism, weight – all key elements in sculptural practice – are calibrated to underline the forces of gravity and tension.

The common conception of the structure as an objectual presence is questioned by the use of photography as a tool of creation of the sculptural shape: the image is conceived both as a representation and as an image in its own right.

The installation is made up of one further element: a brass rod, the lenght of which is given by the sum of the width of the two rooms, starting from the wall in which the hole makes them communicating. The metal rod and the photographs show different aspects of the work: the former is a means of measuring space, the shape of the void; the latter are the result of the attempt to analyse the limits of the photographic medium itself. Thus each element detains a specific force and meaning given by the language used yet it is together that they create a further dimension of understanding of the work.
