STATEMENT
Piergiorgio Sorgetti (1988) is an Italian artist based in Bologna. He approaches his images as a form of research where he studies the ‘material memory of forms that are in continuous mutation’, a process he calls ‘psychic archeology’ where the images compare with the rhythm of dreams. His approach is to look at the interaction between natural and cultural elements and assemble rhythms in which the photographic image begins to undo, confuse and deny its original meaning.
