Cecilia Cosci cuts out images of the sacred art monsters of all times from books, magazines, postcards and brochures and, in the guise of a director, stages powerful visual narratives with a Dadaist-surrealist touch.
Her montages, as she likes to call them, remind of storyboard sequences or film stills, whose protagonists are mostly saints, gods and Madonnas who, invited to descend from the Hyperuranium of art, come to earth to recite the tragedies of our world.
Cosci tells universal stories of love, motherhood, inequality and faith, through minimalist but compelling images, and she brings to light iniquities of our world with a mix of irony, compassion and subtle condemnation.
Extrapolating and reassembling images in a novel and surprising way, Cosci creates original juxtapositions apparently so incongruous as to leave you dumbfounded. However, her montages are so effective to wring a smile, a reflection, a reappraisal.
