Monde, dis-moi tout
The research of Mariateresa Sartori revolves around three thematic fulcrums: empirical scientific method; behavioural dynamics, often in relation to neurosciences; music and sound in relation to language. Depending on the project she embarks upon, the artist uses different mediums ranging from drawing – whether for small or wall-size works – to pinhole photography, video, and sound recordings.
However, such a variety of approaches is merely apparent, and reveals the same attitude supported by recurring patterns of action. These choices enable us to grasp the polymorphous unity of a work which, through single projects and sets, investigates, confirms, and reinvents its underlying relationship to the world. Inside this book three pinhole photographic series, soberly titled Plantes, Nuages and Feuilles which Mariateresa Sartori produced in 2016, 2017 and 2018 respectively. The small-sized works were produced in the south of France, the first two sets on the occasion of a residency at the Cassidaine Camargo Foundation2, the third during a residency at CAIRN, the art centre of Digne-les-Bains, where they were on show the same year.
