Turtle and the priest tattoo
collection of residency Petrolio, AMT gallery 2016
photography of the tattoo inspired by the set of drawings done during the residency Petrolio in Puglia, Italy
The drawings are related to two situations.
First is linked to the way to Torre Guaceto, where we found the dead turtle with the broken shell.
Second one was a loop. Because of no internet in the residency, each third day we were obliged to go to Serra Nova to catch the wifi : We were sitting in front of the Leo's bar and at 9pm the old priest accompanied by two young persons pass in front of us and greet us.
I offered her the motive of the dead turtle broken shell within the priest story in order to support the sublimation of the dead turtle's body into her body and the initiation of her own priest story.
