Photographer's saliva on family album archive

Photographer Federica Landi adorns old family photos with saliva into her Daimones serie.

quote [The inclusion of saliva (a fluid certifying identity) on the photographic surface, creates a layer of contingent “presence”, intimate re-appropriation of the family archive, attempting to 'cure' the fallacious nature of memory and to 'fecundate' its connection with our current time. Saliva is thus the glue that keeps together two dimensions: the motionless time of photography and the contingency of identity].
