Traduzione italiana in preparazione
Many are the references that we have from antiquity onward of the concept of masks as a protection of our personality and identity. We may include thinking of our own face as a mask that varies constantly depending on the circumstances. What Minou Amirsoleimani offers us is surprising because there are no evident characteristics nor exuberant gestures of joy or sadness, but they seem rather reserved. But only its form varies, which makes manifest only its belonging to four different characters whose masks seem to be the mirror of an original model that doesn’t appear in the scene, Though the four masks that hang suspended, as if they were clean laundry, we observe a naturally diffused background that empowers the elements that appear in the foreground that seem to be drying as if we empowers the elements that appear in the foreground and that seem to be drying as if we tried to clean them, to eliminate its content and leave them ready for their new use.
