You've Seen Me

Paolo Ventura - Winter Stories (2010)

“Scenes from the memory bank of a fictional circus performer as he looks back on his life during his final moments.

Using his own childhood memories, beautiful miniature figures, and extraordinarily detailed sets constructed from props purchased at flea markets, Ventura creates a fictional Northern Italian town where a traveling carnival has stopped.

His work evokes a simpler time from Italy’s past, but with a dark twist—shadowy backdrops and retreating figures remind us that this is not quite Eden.”
