Partendo da immagini di luoghi di solito non immediatamente riconoscibili, l’artista cerca di inserire il dubbio: il sospetto che le cose e i paesaggi non siano fissi come appaiono, incorniciati da un presente eterno. Attraverso diverse tecniche e materiali, le immagini sono attraversate da 'ponteggi visivi' che scompongono la realtà e suggeriscono a chi osserva di guardare meglio/dentro. Il cambiamento di palazzi e quartieri e case, che di solito è subito in nome di un progresso pubblicizzato come necessario, viene messo in discussione e riappropriato. La stabilità dell' immagine e della realtà che rappresenta comincia ad apparire claudicante: vulnerabile alla rottura e tesa al cambiamento.

ENG




We imagine our reality against the landscapes of daily life but how do we experience this reality? Are we being made in to experience it in a certain, predetermined way?

In cities, space is designed to be looked at but never totally experienced: only parts are meant to be lived in while the rest is made for consumption or for quickly moving through it. The starting point of my work is therefore to change this status quo. I start with collecting images and then I intervene on them: spaces are freed from imposed architectures and reconnected through imaginary ties. I use lines and odd angles to disrupt places and underline the possibility of change: the images are traversed by 'visual scaffoldings' that break up reality, suggesting to the viewer to look better/inside.

My work then is about inserting doubt, the pleasure of doubt into images that portray areas with a fixed use and transit zones that invite us not to stay. With a little doubt instead, nothing belongs to anyone and everything is open to possibility.
