About This Item: 
This monograph, which accompanies the first major Italian retrospective dedicated to multimedia artist Tracey Moffatt, collects more than 120 images from a diverse selection of the works made by the Australian artist since 1989 "Making art is quite therapeutic, " says Moffatt This brief statement reveals much of the artist's personality and refects her way of interpreting the artistic experience, a practice that often refers to personal stories and events.Of Aboriginal origins, but raised in a white family, Tracey Moffatt (Brisbane, 1960) is fascinated by the pop culture that characterized her youth Early on, images taken from magazines, cinema and television began to constitute a symbolic universe that became a reference point in most of her works, alongside the ever present and partly autobiographical theme of ghetto-segregation lived and understood in all its aspects: racial, social, sexual.Moffatt's photographs tell fragmented stories, imagined and actual, which manage to accentuate the contrasts within our society The cruelty and the tragedy of the subjects treated are emphasized by a refined beauty in the scene depicted, with a nod to the aesthetics of glossy magazines.With an introduction by Filippo Maggia, the monograph includes the catalog of the artist's works, followed by a biography and bibliography
