ci guardi di lassù #intransito







Happy to take part of this traveling  exhibition born by the energy and the creative spirit of four curators and gallery owners in Poland : "In my opinion....Jewellery With a Message".
Since times immemorial jewellery has carried a load of meanings, telling stories, expressing emotions and feelings, conveying messages. 
My contribute to this Call are two pendants  dedicated to the ones trying to reach our coasts.

Il dormiente 

Fotografia digitale, stampa giclée su carta Hahnemuhle, Dibond con telaio in alluminio, cm.40x53 - 2019

Scena domestica che rappresenta il figlio dell’artista addormentato, lo scatto fotografico cattura un momento di sospensione temporale dove luce e colori assumono un ruolo di assoluti protagonisti, condizionando in maniera decisiva la percezione visiva e dando una chiave di lettura intimista alla raffigurazione: “La luce diffusa nella stanza, nella sua satura languidezza, accompagnava il sonno di Thom. La potevo toccare con mano, quasi avesse un peso, un volume. La stanza-rifugio, nella sua intimità, pareva rivelarmi i suoi sogni”.

Meditative Triptych (Mandala of opening doors)

During the obligatory lock down of the past period I developed the need to adapt myself to the surreal rhythm of the long days thanks to a practice that could make me loose and find myself again with ease. The bag full of amber fragments, kept in the closet for years, suddenly found its purpose. The warmth emanated from the resin, with its million years old colours, fed me in these lonely months. With these little stones I composed patterns, and before deleting the first one, and creating the second, I froze the "mandala", the gesture and the result, in a photograph. Which is an offer and a prayer.

To the Ordinary Hero

I share the passion to dream about heroes,but not the necessity to give them a medal: the hero himself doesn't think about a medal while performing an act of heroism. From this consideration my medal was born, a medal to the ordinary everyday hero.

Engraved are the words Bertolt Brecht attributes to Galileo Galilei, answering the comment of his devoted pupil Andrea "Unhappy is the land that breeds no hero", " No Andrea, unhappy is the land is in need of heroes".

Sun and Hearth are rotating on themselves and around, the Sky watching them.
