MINDJOURNEYS

material: marble-resin | dimension: 33x33x32 | year: 2010 … in abandonment….I set my journey free from the yoke of the earth … How many times we have had an experience which has lead us to a mental journey, symbol of freedom, of non-stopping departures to an always different landing – a journey able to bring us to fantastic routes, places of desire, intriguing situations… without moving and often in the utmost silence. A tale, a story, a perfume, simply a thought, amazingly a book, made us begin a journey where, if you surrender, you move forward. The viaticum gets a conceptual value where everything is possible, everything can be inverted, where feet give way to mind.

POSTER – MANIFESTO

material: marble, resin | dimension: 40x40x220 | anno: 2010 “Shadows, mute or speaking, go directly deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” Ingmar Bergman, lanterna magica 1987 With this quote from Bergman’s autobiography I wanted to highlight the power of cinema, its ability to talk with our inner self and to leave a sign in our mind. I’ve been dreaming of making a tribute to cinema for a long time – probably since the very day when I realized its impact and its social and human contribution. Therefore, a very important occasion of consideration: the cinema that improves and “grows” along with whoever promotes it who, doing so, expresses his/her celebration of life in all its different aspects, positive and negative, in a meaningful and edifying way. It has the great capacity to influence the human nature. Here is why the choice of using the cinema as an educational means is, in my opinion, very interesting and relevant – because explaining ideas by images can be an effective and easy-to-understand language. In this work, the faces going around the head, like interchangeable masks, emphasize the theatrical and fictional side of cinema. They have such solid identities that they look real, they move us or they bring us to new dimensions. The body of the sculpture, with some posters, becomes a tribute to Italian cinema which represent a “growing” and edifying cinema.

SCENT

material: marble, resin | dimension: 40x40x200 | anno: 2010 Essence arrives in silence…like a gift…permeating with its fragrance nostrils and mind…in the silence, it make us recalls…experiences encounters. Again, the silence is the leading subject of a communicative experience. The scent is the medium of this message, that essence which quietly arrives like a gift, permeating with its hints our nostrils and thus opening the rooms of the mind. In the silence, the mystery of this scent reveals itself following the trace left on our memory, recalling past experiences and encounters. A new sudden situation talks to us about things, places and people, in a shiver of eyes movements. We try to live again, meet and give an answer to this olfactory call. Who? Where? What? A pleasure to breath, a seduction to enjoy, a fragrance to live on and to go into raptures about.

“THOUGH”, a triad of figures to represent the family, origin and goal of all existence for many, a sculpture designed to suggest the search for harmony and serenity recalling past memories to look too distracted that rests on it and for some juncture the lives. The silent beauty of the body, meaning that the value of charge revolves around the awareness that each of us is the fruit of love between two people whatever happens life, regardless of size and choices that sometimes, like a kite, chase the wind.
