-Rituals New York 2012-
The project ‘Transitions’ is born out of a collaboration between visual artist Andreco and photographer Samantha Casolari. The included images are a preview of this project, created in the end of 2011 and that will presented in the next following months. The project, which initially aimed at re-interpreting contemporary folklore as well as rituals related to indigenous Shamanism, developed into a representation of the ‘transformations’ that are the basis of each rituals, as well as of physical and natural changes and alterations. Andreco has created a series of paintings, masks and sticks as objects of imaginary and visionary worships and rituals. Samantha has photographed the set ups of the rituals and its participants according to her own personal vision.
‘Transformation’ will soon be presented as a multimedia exhibition involving installations, masks, painting and photographs.
