Were We Once Lovers?


Were We Once Lovers? is a series of collages on old photographs, which have been collected by Urso over several years. The series includes a selection of 50 pieces. Each photo depicts a different unknown woman: above the silhouette of her body, the artist juxtaposed the cut-out miniature of a bird. Therefore, the bird covers the face and blocks the woman’s view, prolonging or shaping her features, becoming itself part of the composition. As a result, the two creatures complete each other becoming one.
