Abstract

The monograph is the first to cover the life and artistic career of Michele Zaza in systematic fashion. After the introductory essay, which fills in the historical and critical background of his work, the volume documents his production from the 1970s to the present day through a chronology replete with illustrations, unpublished materials, texts and quotations of the artist.
This production ranges from the early sequences of photographs, with their symbolic references to the artist’s own body, the figures of his parents, and his family home, to the creation of large installations, characterized by the presence of photographic elements and sculptures with pure and totemic forms that hold a direct dialogue with their architectural setting. In a vision of existence in which everything is interconnected, he aspires in his work to a transcendence of the contingent, immersing the viewer in an environment that has been re-created through images but is at the same time real.
