Italian girl with Slovakian roots makes a clear statement against labeling of people through a series of provocative photographs shot in the center of Bratislava.
Ampersand4ever is the name of the artist, a young italian girl with Slovakian roots. Through her work, she wants to show the world that differences should be embraced in order to overcome the gap between people.
“The main theme of the project is LABELING. It’s so easy to label someone but extremely difficult to get rid of those nasty marks later” explains the artist.
“I’m showing my labels to the world intentionally in Freedom square. The only way to free yourself is by exposing yourself.”
Together with LABELS she published a second series of photographs named HOPE. With a cross and a megaphone in her hand she shows the world that we are all equal when facing prejudice and hostility no matter which gender you belong to. She almost appears to be androgynous entity.
