Carmine Mauro Daprile: 'Moon'
Carmine Mauro Daprile, Cosplayer #15, 2008, c-print, 82×103 cm
Moon will be an unusual interruption to the everyday experience of central Bristol celebrating imagination and the power of fiction.
Carmine Mauro Daprile is interested in real environments which appear staged or changed by the presence of unusual figures or circumstances. In The Moon the artist challenges our understanding and perception of our immediate environment.
Working with cosplayers, a subculture of people interested in costume and role play, he intends to interrupt the everyday experience in central Bristol for one hour and celebrate our imagination and the power of fiction.
