When light meets darkness
Beatrice Sacco

I was always fascinated by the way magazines convey ideal and often distorted concepts, and how much something as simple as a publicity can impact our view of the world. So, I started developing many years ago a technique in the dark room, where I would be able to print a page from a magazine and let both sides appear to the viewer. The overlaps show interesting and unexpected connections in between the two sides of the page, put together by chance or mere organization of the magazine. The black and white also takes off the glossy feeling these pictures often have, leaving them in an obscure, liminal state. I then started to research and use old magazines, as I got interested more and more in the way this media was able to convey racist, sexist and non-inclusive messages so powerfully throughout the years, or override them sometimes. My goal is to use it to neutralize it, by both obscuring and putting into light the contradictions they stand for. This selection contains works from my second and third series of overlaps, the ones where I started to go deeper on both the meaningful connections and hidden messages contained into some of them. The connection of the bright and the dark areas want to be a suggestion for the viewer to dwell into their shades and dive into the fascinating meeting between light and darkness.
