My work can be considered as an abstract form of lip sync.
Through objects, actions and redundant symbols, I try to reproduce a realistic display of contemporary life acts. Or at least what I remember about them. Memory, in fact, is one of the focal points of my research. I mix and overlay individual and collective memories to create a fragmented discussion with the spectator.
I try to be clinical. I often start from a specific subject, like in the work is it just a matter of opinion (2011), which started with a consideration about the financial crisis and ended up addressing the possibility of social change through a better understanding of personal values. All done through a process of explaining rebellion as a way to free the human spirit. As a highly recognizable architectural reference, the work becomes its own thing separated from what it represents.
