RESIDUI#5 comes out at the end of an absurd and disastrous year, a year that has found all of us defenceless in the face of an unstoppable situation. This fifth issue acquires, therefore, a particular meaning not only within Livio Ninni’s personal path, but also on a collective level, differing from the previous four photozines by theme and development.
The aim is no longer to document the work of other artists, but to develop his own research, which is enriched by a new repertoire of installations made in abandoned urban places and in peripheral areas in a state of decay. These are factories, offices and churches, that is those environments where human existence is expressed. Bringing nature back within what remains of human activity becomes an act of resilience, as well as an exercise in ecological resistance: thus the economic-social system and the environmental system converge towards a new synthesis.
