Silvia Mangosio was born in 1988 in Torino, where she lives and works.

Finishing in 2010 a photography course at IED in Torino, she attends from 2011 to 2013 the MFA in imaging arts and photography at Fondazione Fotografia Modena.

The installation Memoriamatic explores the theme of memory and questions the capacity of our mind to create and destroy the reality that surrounds us. Using the medium of photography, which quintessentially lends itself to the ambiguity of “true” and “false”, she built false memories – family pictures representing the life of a person, slides of events that may have occurred or desired. Drawing on common imagery from the family album and snapshots, the photograph becomes the metaphor of a genetic make-up, both of what we inherit in a more or less conscious way, and of what we can modify: an accumulation of true and false memories, perceptions and events which we can subject to active, long-lasting and paradoxically “real” manipulation.

The slides processed and mounted on a light box are presented to the viewer as small windows looking into an inner world, to which they invite to immerse and find out what is true and what is not, or to decide that the question does not really matter after all.
