Artist-in-residence: "Over her eyes" by Simone Sapienza




"Over her eyes" is a proposal project by the Italian visual artist Simone Sapienza about the meaning of the worship of Saint Lucia in Stockholm. The project aims to depict this traditional worship via the photographic medium and the use of archives. Moreover, the project will be a metaphorical celebration of the light as gift itself. In fact, Lucia is the protector of blind people, since she was probably blinded as martyr. According to other versions, the eyes on the plate were only a metaphorical link to her name coming from “lux”, i.e. light. The worship of Lucia in Sweden has origin in the 18th century, while only in 1927 a newspaper based in Stockholm launched the first contest to vote the most beautiful “Lucia”.
