As a Rose is a Rose is a Rose
As a flow of a breath, I imagine something like a floating gesture into a spiral movement, similar to a flow of butterflies pinned on the wall; a kind of a translucent floating body in a spiral movement.
The artwork is going to be installed on the left side of the wall coming up the stairs and working in crescent between the ground and the first floor,
Could be a flowing gesture into a spiral movement.
The materials are fabrics and clothing, collected from the places where I am traveling and working.
Every little piece of fabric has an individual story.
The textiles are elaborated in a pictorial process with linseed oil, becoming an additional structure and colour; also there are natural organic materials, activated by reflecting and absorbing light as becoming translucent.
The small shapes of textiles are shaped in triangular geometric forms, a kind of trigonometry of the space, an archive of mythologies, poetically speaking, as every little fragment of clothing and textile brings in light personal histories; a questionnaire to a dialogue in between.
The small fragments are pinned with a distance of several centimetres from the wall, adding by shadows a third movement to the artwork.
The final drawing of the composition is to be made on site.
