“A Slideluck Potshow London/DEVELOP Tube creative collaboration. From Claudia Mozzillo: Siren Land is a work inspired by my own life. It is a journey through desire and loss where the stories narrated continue outside the frames. Siren Land is somewhere between dream and reality, a metaphysical place where the distance from my homeland, Napoli, and my family is less painful. The Siren Land’s project is inspired by Kafka’s version that he used in his own translation of the myth of Ulysses, who escapes from the sirens. For Kafka, this episode is the perfect metaphor to explore the idea of love at a distance; a deeply evocative metaphor, through the lenses of the emotional distance.
Since birth we have an innate predisposition to look for the proximity of a reference figure to take care of our needs and which attributes value to our existence. The relationship with our lands and our mothers, act as a filter between ourselves and the others. At some stage of our life this process is interrupted by the need to create a distance, a gap that contributes to create our identity as individuals and pushes us towards the creation of new life. The aim of this work is an attempt to exorcise this distance, visually and emotionally, and sublimate it through the poetry of images.” by Claudia Mozzillo
