An Exhibition Reception Combining
Photography by Gisella Sorrentino & Dance by Collin Ranf
Multimedia Performances at 7pm & 8pm
A photographer based in New York City, Sorrentino is originally from Rome, Italy. She utilizes the process of double-exposure and combines performance with static backgrounds that merge subjects with textures such as asphalt, cobble stones, sand and ocean water. In each piece the artist evokes nostalgia and ambiance, playing upon the desire of place rather than presenting its actuality. Since 2006 Gisella Sorrentino has exhibited her photographs in exhibitions that took place in Europe and along the East Coast. Her work has been exhibited La Mama La Galleria in the Bowery, the Casa Internazionale delle Donne in Rome, NOoSphere Arts, and severa other prestigious galleries and projects.
