Unknown people are reawakened in Doménico C. V. Talaricos pictures based on photographs from bygone time. These people actually existed at one time – having experienced various events that were captured with a photo – but memory of them has been extinguished. What has remained are images of them, found in boxes and many other things. Talarico creates worlds in which these old protagonists are assigned a new role. Out of these situations his works representatively deal with the question of conceptualizing personal identity.
Talaricos works are meant to create a dream-like and at the same time macabre atmosphere, and to encourage the viewer toward reflection.
