Inside and Outside…
Some words about Lucia Pizzani’s Absent Portraits
(Extracts from Lorena Gonzalez's text)

"With a disciplined and constant performance in the fields of image production and audiovisual creation, Pizzani stands as a young artist basically concerned with the instability of the self and its fractures within contemporary world. Her worries lead her to use herself as a subject-object for self-representation.
... Nevertheless, this self-representation in her visual production does not deliberately constitute a critical position towards any specific subject or even towards a re-design of a story yet to be told. Both the rising of a random and anxious strive for unity typical of the fractured self and the impossibility to achieve that unity stand out in her work"

"It is in this in-and-out persistently reconstructed by Pizzani’s work, in this tormented place described by Bachelard as one of fear and horror, that the geometries of the process of vanishing rise to stand out in the photographic and visual corpus by the artist who suggests – in some way or another – a sort of silent leap."
