In this project, The only records of our ancestors are in their fossils, Bianca Salvo focuses on the tensions between our natural impulses and our view of ourselves as logical beings. As Salvo describes the series,
“It is a memento of a humanity struggling between civilization and primitivism, the logical and the mystical, between living as erect rational being and being destined to born and die according to the unknowable and inexplicable flow of primordial forces. The series is about the rediscovering of the primal and raw condition of human race through the demolition of what is visible, demonstrable and objectively quantifiable.”
Salvo, currently working on an MA in Photography, likes to use photography as a hybrid medium. For this project she combined still photographic images with organic materials, digital manipulations and archival medical illustrations with the aim to destroy and expose the empirical order and the linearity of the pillars of civilization. for more of Salvo’s work, click here.
