Moira Ricci 20.12.53 – 10.08.04 is a complex contemporary photographic research project created by Moira Ricci between 2004 and 2014, based on a powerful effect of reality created through digital fiction. The project and the series of works created at its conclusion represent a means of reappropriating the figure of the lost mother, as indicated by the dates of her birth and death already referenced in the title. The volume, designed by the artist herself, includes all 50 photographs from the series. These photographs follow each other in a free sequence, arranged on the page with ample white space around the images, reminiscent of how photographs appear to our eyes when we leaf through a family album. It is a very intimate artist’s book, yet at the same time a publication that, through simplicity and visual impact, engages the observer in a story that mysteriously and irreversibly belongs to them. It is a book that has the capacity to become an object of affection.
