Similarly to memory processes, Elena Grossi’s work originates from a delicately varied act of repetition. In fact, her imagery is the product of the re-reading of already existing pictures and gazes. On the one hand, the serial principle recurring in her productive strategy is a way to almost scientifically investigate the visual construction of a narrative memory at a social level; on the other hand, the playful manner in which her analysis is pursued suggests the individual re-appropriation of what has been conformed to a collective memorial standard.
