POST-ADOLESCENCE

The easiest way to image how a given generation perceive the world is by comparing it with the expectations and disappointments experienced by the generation who brought them into the world and raised them. Those who were born in 1968 had seen the moon landing at age 1, they sang The Clash aged 16. Those who were born in 2000 were hit by 9/11 aged 1 and, by age 8, they had gone through two wars, multiple terror attacks, and a financial crisis which, nearly ten years on, still has them firmly in its grips. Social media requested them the exhibition of strong personalities creating a huge difference between reality and fiction. My project explores the sense of ineptitude that characterizes these contemporary teenagers.

Born 1992, Arzignano, Italia.
Lives and works in Milan, Italia.
