Hashtag deadsea

2015
Several editions print

This series arises from the project called Hashtag by Barbara and Ale, an Italian visual artists’ duo. The topics they deal with (abandon, loneliness, construction, renewal, silence etc.) are common emotions and feelings: the artists invite the viewers to imagine what, who, where, when something happened.

It is like telling the emotion of a trip, but showing only the central stage; by removing part of the information gathered on the way, they shape something similar to a forgotten slide, lost by a distant relative, not knowing by whom it was taken, where or when. In the case of the series Hashtag deadsea #desert they show the silence and magic of one of most extreme place in the world.

Barbara and Ale focused on small details which reveal the human presence; bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and the Palestinian Territories to the west, for its surface and shores are 429 metres below sea level, Earth’s lowest elevation on land: “It seems to be in another planet, all our senses were overawed from the silence, the light and the heat. We love the audience to tell us what they imagine, but we don’t tell anything about our trip: it talks better than us.
