"Casa Museo", 2010edition 3+1, C-Print, 20cm x 30cm
Case Museo is a series of photographs taken in the House Museum of the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa De Chirico in Rome. The museum is situated in the former apartment of the surrealist painter and his wife and claims to present the interior setting as originally arranged by them. The walls show mainly paintings from De Chirico’s late period, wich brought him the distrust of critics, namely the surrealist writers that had acclaimed his earlier work. In the context of his living environment, De Chirico's ambiguous reputation as visionary proto-modernist and vilified classicist, is contratsed with his personal construction of an artistic identity.
