Federico Clavarino – Ghost Stories
The four islands of the Frioul archipelago are located in the Mediterranean near Marseilles. These islands have been the scene of apparently unrelated events that make up a mysterious constellation. The first rhinoceros ever brought to Europe was unloaded on Ratonneau in 1516. The main fictional character in ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ was imprisoned on If. And, in 1944, a downed fighter plane fell into the waters together with its unfortunate pilot, whose bracelet was found by a fisherman decades later. Federico Clavarino’s ‘Ghost Stories’ is a series of photographs that is meant to weave together all of these events, which occurred in the same space but at different times.
