Clovis Paul Toraman, Continente Inospitale

Vernissage : 09.06.2016, 19:00 

Sandra Calligaro arrived almost by accident in Afghanistan to realize an adolescent dream and to become a reporter. Finally she stayed 7 years in Kabul. At the end, Afghan Dreams doesn’t show the « war in action », but witnesses the ordinary life and the « moments in-between ». These are also the moments, that Clovis Paul Torraman is searching for. Working on the migration issues, his quest brought him from Italy, Switzerland and France. Far from the mass media images, he shows a different point of view on the migrants, their situation in a suspended time frame.

Rather, it is the fragility of the everyday life of this turbulent country that has always fascinated me. I tried here to show the Afghan uneasiness by highlighting a certain latent distress, underlined by imperceptible details that would come out of these scenes: ordinary situations, moments in-between, where tension is tangible, emotions perceptible, but the conflict rarely visible.
