There’s a corner inside each home of us, where portraits are collected and displayed. All well arranged, grouped and framed, they seem to be there to prevent our fear of loneliness.
This place has been designed to silence a might-it happen future pain with overwhelming emotions. In fact, surrounded by the portraits we recover feelings.

The portraits are emotional carriers which go beyond time and space. By looking at them we approach a representation of a reality in which both essence and appearance, perception and experience are mixed together. Portraits of a year is a story of revelation. Focused on the duality of concealing and exposing, Federica investigates the mechanics of representation that concerns our own persona. The main focus of the artist’s research has been human feelings, and the portraits are meant as a collection of universal emotions, an assortment of intuitive reactions to the events of life.
