About me

"Art is an essential part of life itself and is more than just a reconstructed moment. I like to see things in a different light, which is how my everyday subjects suddenly become supergirls! Reality changes when I photograph it, but it becomes my version of reality as a result".



Caterina Notte ’s art career has begun in the 2000’s in Rome galleries, during her studies in the Economics at the La Sapienza University.

Her work originates from the use of an old A4-size scanner, with which the artist consciously and assiduously exploited her time to experiment, scanning different parts of her body and reassembling it digitally. The final result was certainly a reality, but perhaps - at the end - only a small part of it was real. From that moment on, the transition to video and photography was short. In fact, Caterina is completely at ease in using her camera and this allows her to express her malleability 100%. It is the medium through which she can finally "stop and perform reality", penetrate the movement and give the world a new image. Photography is an absolutely congenial method, which lends itself to sharing what we believe to be a fleeting moment, which stops reality and allows you to capture that exact moment. Caterina feels herself inside the box of Schrödinger's cat, but with the cat precisely.



"the impossibility of being weak/fragile is innate in the human being, weakness is unquestionably our power".
