Villa Argentina

by Arunà Canevascini | 25 June 2018
Villa Argentina is a visual exploration of the relationship between the Iranian-born, Swiss photographer Arunà Canevascini and her mother, an Iranian artist who spent her childhood in Tehran as a secluded child, a condition of isolation which she somehow replicates in her adult life. The book represents the family house in the South of Switzerland, Villa Argentina, as a stage for her poetic universe and a backdrop for the poetic arrangements of objects that the author made for the camera. In this creative solitude à deux,this work explores and overlaps issues of domesticity, femininity and migration. Canevascini examines these themes through elaborately-designed images in which the domestic settings she photographs are disrupted by intrusions from both the history of art and her own family past.
