Lorenzo ” SerraGlia ” Servi

 

I have been living in Finland since 2009 but my knowledge of Finnish language is still very limited. Although English is widely spoken, I find myself often in unclear and incomprehensible situations.

Looking for visual clues to get a better understanding, I have began to observe people and interpret their gestures more often. Thus is born “Secret Stories”, a series of seven short films (each running about one minute) where people have been unknowingly filmed in ordinary situations. Subtitles have been added in order to make visible the dialogues and thoughts that would otherwise remain misunderstood or unrevealed.

However, this series is not only about revealing imagined and paradoxical stories but it also invites us to observe our everyday life with curiosity and imagination: because beautiful stories can happen anytime, especially when we least expect them.

SerraGlia is the alias of Lorenzo Servi, an Italian architect and visual designer/artist based in Helsinki, Finland. He is constantly researching and analysing issues in everyday life and built environments, and using them as the basis for creating self-initiated projects documented through photography, video and publications. SerraGlia has been a part of several group exhibitions in Finland and abroad and had his first solo exhibition at The Finnish Museum Photography in 2017.

The exhibition has received support from VISEK.
