Were we once lovers?

2015/2016

Were we once lovers? is a series of collages on old photographs, which are been collected by Urso over several years. The series it includes a selection of 50 pieces. Each photo depicts a different and unknown woman: above her body silhouette the artist juxtaposed the cut-out miniature of a bird. Thereby, the bird covers the face and hides the women vision, prolonging or shaping her features, becoming itself part of the composition. As result of it, the two creatures are completing each other becoming one.
