Pasquale Autiero is a passionate, generous railway worker on a daily journey who shot a Russian Lomographic from the 80s - the Holga 120 - with a medium format camera, using the pop automatism of a built-in flash. Autiero gets entangled and participates, he slips into things and reality, returning a neo-melody in the rhythm of a laid wall, a picture gallery with warm and bright tones that disrupts the expectation of the imagined South in a mosaic.

The incurable contradictions of the South are returned according to dirty and undefined margins to the eye of the viewer, with a density open to the gaze, overheated by the halo and the fire in the center. An eye that shuffles the cards of the sacred and the profane, the votive shrine and the body, the ex voto and the showy make-up, the sacred icon and the disguise, but in Naples this is in some ways a reality brought to paradox by the important experience of Giuseppe Desiato. Autiero moved by sliding into the body of the South, between Campania and Sicily, Puglia and Calabria, the city and the province, bringing out the color from the shadow, the illuminations flashed by the darkness, stopping those radical and instantaneous contrasts. of everyday life. There is a great visual instinct to recompose the inside and the outside, the conscious and the unconscious, the body and the spirit that transfers into an image an unresolved match between the sacred and the profane and brings, with the energy of a dazzling eye, a symbolic and cultural stratification on the surface
