Abstract or Description:

Sorelle Povere di Santa Chiara 2015, multi-media installation.
This project is a response to the idea of simplicity and poverty which is the guiding principle of order of Poor Clares. After a year of liaison I was invited together with the production team to spend a few days in the Monastery of Santa Chiara in the Republic of San Marino to film and record the life of the members of the community.
‘Voices of the Sirens’, Montagu Bastion, 24 June – 21 August 2015
