About the work

About the work

Series: Paisagem

Minelli here captures what once was, overgrown grass swaying in the wind; concealing a pattern once placed below our feet. Minelli successfully takes you someplace else, a forgotten land. The vertical green stripe to the left pays homage to the linear trajectory within the photograph, viscerally highlighting the grass’s movement and sounds all around. Minelli asks us to pay attention to everyday items that we tend to ignore.

“All of these works were created at the border between Portugal and Spain, where my studio is located. Many of the photos are captured within the studio, around its vicinity, or directly from it. I utilize flowers and weeds sourced from the roads along the border, as well as other simple everyday materials. I apply them onto photo paper using a spraying technique, akin to analog photo printing where you project a negative onto the paper.

The photos taken outside of the studio area typically depict transitional spaces, such as outskirts of cities, borders, and other limits. They serve as visual narratives of these locations, telling stories about the void present in these suspended areas.” — Filippo Minelli
