Eva and Franco Mattes: Riccardo Uncut
For Riccardo Uncut, artists Eva and Franco Mattes posted a call on social media, offering to buy someone's phone for $1,000 in order to turn the photo and video contents into an art project—an uncut and uncensored portrait of someone's life. Accessible to the public as a customized, chronological slideshow, Riccardo Uncut gives viewers a unique glimpse into the personal life of Riccardo, the chosen applicant. The Mattes investigate where one might find authenticity in self-representation and an unedited version of the self.
