Carlo Ferraris | CB15
Carlo Ferraris reframes quotidian subjects—a police officer, a grandmother, flatpack furniture—by removing them from their expected contexts and imbues his images with a symbolically charged uncanniness. Cultivating a multimedia practice that comprises photography, sculpture, and video, Ferraris analyzes aspects of contemporary life and the histories that shape it. Each subject’s circumstances are modified to establish a sense of logical disjunction and to subtly defy established social norms. His works seek to disrupt the viewer’s expectations, eschewing coherent narratives in favor of an ambiguity predicated on a complex irony.
