FIGLIE DEI MILITARI 2019
Drawings with carbon paper
Figlie dei Militari is a serie of drawings made with handwritings and inspired by archives found in Turin State Archives. Those are 1917’s essays from a school for soldiers' daughters. The mandatory topic is about how dying for the Nation should not be considered as a sacrifice.
I have recomposed new texts with various fragments extracted from all the essays, while reproducing the specific handwriting of each student.
This artwork has been realized for the Turin based Archivio Magazine n°4 by invitation of Achille Filipponi, co-founder and writer of Archivio Magazine
