“In Sofia Masini’s work the revelation of body and landscape is a dance, a back and forth between two bodies, but also between photography and sculpture and performance. Here there is no complete fusion and reunion. The artist engages in what happens before the complete reunion – she highlights the shedding, the conflict and the hardship of the process, the search for a unity that is in sight, but not yet happening. Her body dances with rocks, between the thirst of desolation and the untameable force of powerful waters, is scarred, fragmented and reconstructed, different, as the morphing process is ongoing. It is a beginning with no end, and activation of a new archive, a search for different equilibriums – the revelation of its traces.”
