Leica D-Lux camera and its components (2004), plexiglass box 80 x 28 x 20 cm (31.5 x 11 x 7.5 inches)
“The Leica D-Lux consists of the camera encased and sealed in time by Marina Sagona into an artwork. She removes its functionality as a camera and turns it into an object to be observed.
The director Bernardo Bertolucci gave the camera to Sagona’s ex, his godson, in 2004 as a present. Not being very interested he gave it to Marina who enjoyed the grainy texture of the Leica and shot many shorts with it for about three years, including Stabat Mater.”
