Africa del nord
Africa del Nord (2016) is a photographic project developed in Morocco. The artist travelled around the country starting from the imperial city of Fes, to the pink city of Marrakesh, to Essaouira. The works reveal her interest to apprehend the diverse places and cultures at different scales and at different levels: communities, individuals, architectures, everyday places and objects, and also historical landmarks. Despite a detached and respectful distance, in each shot her fascination and admiration becomes evident for the viewer. Posillipo’s project is informed by the spirit of the flâneuse: her gaze through the photographic apparatus doesn’t reveal any sort of cultural patronage rather it depicts the places and the people in an incisive but joyful way and the fashion in which an artist make them her own.
