A visual journey, in the form of a diary, constructed through the photos and video of Liana Miuccio in dialogue with the written word of Jhumpa Lahiri.
A new linguistic and visual interchange, between photography, video and writing.
Through the exhibition Visual Diary Liana Miuccio continues her exploration of identity, memory and migration by linking her photographs and videos to some of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Jhumpa Lahiri's texts.
Liana Miuccio's gaze, in dialogue with Jhumpa Lahiri's written word, searches for the identity and meaning of the place where one lives one's daily life, thus representing the signs and gestures of the contemporary. In this way, Miuccio creates precisely a Visual Diary, creating an intimate setting in the exhibition space of the Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale that includes her photographs, one of her films, books and other objects.
In this way, the exhibition is transformed into an invitation for the visitor to participate in a collective experience that celebrates that everyday life that unites peoples.
