Loredana Longo
"Nothing Is As It Seems," 2009

"Nothing Is As It Seems" is an installation of a prison cell covered in mirrors that infinitely reflect the space of the cell until it becomes an impossible spectacle, turning freedom into an illusion. The cell is suspended, floating above the ground, giving the object a poetic appearance. It is installed in a dark space and illuminated by flickering stage-lights. Loredana Longo’s work uses theatrical scenography and cinematic techniques, and is often autobiographical or inspired by political situations. This work was produced at the Lot 219 Workshop of L’appartement 22 in Fez.
