A recurring presence in Anna Rose’s work since 2013 as part of a series of photographs grouped under the title Hair Does, is this blond hair-draped figure drifts in and out of different landscapes and contexts. Often drawing on tropes of childhood and memory, the figure is at once coyly playful and unsettlingly unidentified, neither resident nor guest in any of its locations, but merely passing through.
It reappears here in the spaces of Numeroventi at times seemingly at home, and at others like a fleeting apparition. Inspired both by the striking minimal lines of the artist apartments as well as the historical details of the palazzo, these photographs capture the figure as it shifts between time periods, seeking solid footing as it goes.
Shooting: Anna Rose, Martino di Napoli Rampolla
