Tracey Moffatt is sure l¹artista Australian more known in the world with extensions in the main museums and galleries in Australia, America, Asia and Europe. Its job, through one strongly irony, turns one all¹estetica threatening look of the past.

The photographic series of Azzopardi Tides, inspired all¹uomo without face of the story of Apollinaire the poète assassiné, is based on the vision of one joint-stock company and accredited. A feminine mask without expression that assumes the personality of a boy of seven years. In the main cities d¹Australia, country with one strongly ethics care the problems dell¹ambiente and of the recycling, the local municipalities organizes regular ³tip-out nights². To the residents old furnitures come asked to put on the edge of the road all those cumbersome refusals (, household-electric routes) that they cannot be classifies to you like normal domestic trash, for being collected from means of the municipality.
