“Through photography and moving images, Giacomo Infantino’s imaginary takes form and mentions, deconstructs, regenerates and generates myths and mythology that are surrounded by a natural and supposedly timeless scenario, almost archetypal but in a contemporary way. Light has such a key role in his visions. It’s not the sun light, it’s the one that belong to the dark. This kind of light let us see the dark, to look it into its eyes. Despite it appear to us through acid and electric colours with artificial form, it suggest us an ontological doubting about the nature of his source."
