Approaching the space like a child would do, I become the conductor of a silent orchestra.”
Key workds for my works:
-Alienation form the "self".
-Consumerism/ massa production.
"I look at my-self, and at people that lives a life without be conscious of what is the real matter of our existence. Everything in our days, goes too fast that we lose the control of our gesture and we do not choose for our self. We are part of a chain that trigger us to be surrounded from many useless objects even if we don’t need any of them; but we are angry, we are tired and we have to fill our emptiness in one way, and that’s the way! The system of society is taking over of our life, and unconsciously, we learn day by day to adapt even more to that.
My works, consist in a discourse between me and find objects that people don’t want anymore. I give to those objects a new mining, a new life, in the most general sense, they take part of a setting, where they can shine again and where, the viewer is able to appriciate the pure poetic beauty of them. The space, so becomes a stage where all the different object takes place, where they gater to be admired and to be sensed in a way that goes quite far from their own original function."
