Description

In Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light visual metaphors are beautifully woven together, addressing challenging concepts such as the silence and despair surrounding the tragic death of a beloved sibling, especially when compounded by the horror of murder and violation. Anna D’Addario works through the intensity of extreme personal loss and family trauma, to create a unique elegy to her sister Daniela. This kind of practice requires a healthy amount of courage and psychological stamina on behalf of the artist, as she opens herself up, not only to her own raw, painful feelings, but to the potential of viewers’ morbid curiosity, fear, sympathy and a myriad of unexpected responses.

D’Addario addresses the problems associated with remembering and how memory and photography are inextricably linked to place, time, nostalgia and forgetting. In doing so, she creates a work that is a carefully considered exploration of photography’s value and application as a tool for symbolic, emotional and poetic communication.
