Martina della Valle's Time Dust and the POST-IT book limited editions are available for sale, on request or directly in Metronom space.
The POST-IT book is a limited edition developed from a series of picture details of a photography volume's pages on which a mysterious author has intervened by covering with yellow post-its all the naked bodies. Martina della Valle, returning from a trip to Milan, found that book on the Milan-Malpensa bus, lost or voluntarily abandoned by an unknown traveler. The chance of meeting with the publication in a place where people walk, get up, get down, travel usually without leaving a sign, the trace of the meticulous work of an unknown reader, have generated a reflection on the subjective interpretation of an image. Who left the book on the bus? Was it lost or deliberately abandoned? Who buys a book on contemporary photography to meticulously censor all images depicting a naked body? The project was presented on the occasion of Martina della Valle’s residency at Italian Institute of Culture in Paris in 2014, in collaboration with Mois de la Photo.
