Ghost Stories by Federico Clavarino
The Frioul archipelago is located in front of the gulf of Marseille, and it comprises four islands: Ratonneau, Pomègues, If and Tiboulen. Frioul is an archipelago in space and in time: these islands have been the scenario of apparently unrelated events that make up a mysterious constellation.
Ghost Stories is a series of photographs that are supposed to link these different events that happened in the same place but at different times.
All these stories tell us about people, animals or objects that have resurfaced: Edmond Dantès himself, the rhino, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry bracelet.
Each of the threads of these stories led me to other places: Paris, where the revenge of the Count of Monte Cristo took place, a series of museums in Europe, where proofs of Dürer’s rhino are kept, and a few places where the many planes of Saint-Exupéry crashed.
