Giulia Parlato is an Italian artist based in London. Her practice focuses on staged photography, and revolves around history, myths, and object-hood. Her recent series, “Diachronicles”, explores the relationship in between archaeology, the museum space, and the production of historical stories.
” Diachronicles” mixes truth and fiction effortlessly, creating a world that clarifies how these fragments fall brief of informing the full story. In describing the historical area that her work checks out, Parlato discusses:
” In this space, the attempt to reconstruct the previous falls into phantasmal gaps, where things are created, utilized, buried, uncovered, transported, transferred. This nomadic and fragmentary nature of what has been left reveals how the movement, transfiguration, and misinterpretation of objects shape historiography and eventually, the real.”
