The House On Lamppost

Alessia Curini, Italy

The house on lampposts is an autobiographical project, where I tell the story of my family and explain how my brother's mental illness shaped my childhood and grown-up identity.

This multidimensional narration takes place by intersecting the text with images taken from original documents, archive photos or pictures shot by myself, as well as my and my brother’s
drawings. The idea was to create a system of signs and symbols inducing the reader to infer the meaning of issues such as family, faith, fear, hatred and mental health.

The short version presented here is only the first part of the story.
