In the experimental series “Impermanent Masks”, the Brazilian photographer Alessandro Celante constructs mortuary masks of living people, placing the spectator in contact with the representation of death and making a counterpoint to the role of photography and his false notion of objectivity.

“The affirmation and presentiment of life in this work is due to sensory experience with the photography of an expanded form, both in its capture process and in the different adaptations and expository actions.”

Masks present themselves as a sensorial occupation, starting from the aesthetic, immersive experience, questioning and fostering by their own contradictions, relationships that leave common sense and materialize as an invitation to reflection.
