La scalata


La scalata è vedersi paesaggio


La scalata si comincia sempre
da soli
e da dentro

Playing with patterns

That is: "Le mani di Ca' Pretor" ("Ca' Pretor's Hands). 

  I drew these hands last summer in Ca' Pretor, a rustic and very much loved chalet on the Italian Alps. They are the hands of the participants at a drawing workshop that was held there. It was such a pleasure to observe these busy hands surrounded by my beloved mountains, and to hold with me their gentle gestures up till now - and beyond. I would like to have this pattern on a magic dress that can tickle, touch, caress, comfort and gently pinch throughout the perils, standstills and excitements of creative times.

Pushing the Envelope


-->
The work investigates postal pigeons as a bygone mode of communication. Postal pigeons were used for centuries to delivery messages, often across perilous areas such as war zones and sieges. The drawing of a dead pigeon is associated to a sentence found on a gravestone in a cemetery in London; the combination of the two highlights the affective potential of old-fashioned, pre-digital means of communication. 

The exhibition will be open from 6th to 16th May 2015. How to get there.

Yet Another Narrative

Yet Another Narrative is an audio-visual tour of the Foundling Museum in London.

The work questions the seemingly objective, authoritative voice of some audio tours by weaving into the narrative a subjective, intimate voice. The interaction between on-screen images on the handheld digital device and the museum space creates yet another narrative that critically engages with the collection. This video presents a preview of the project.



Download from Vimeo or iTunes the complete tour on your mobile device and visit the Foundling Museum. The tour begins in the museum's entrance hall, just after the information desk and bookshop. Contact me for any further details.

Sono bellissima

 

Sono bellissima
I am beautiful


É da un mese che ho il raffreddore
I have had a cold for one month


Ho degli occhi ragno
I have got spider eyes 


Un occhio se ne è andato a caccia di aracnofobici
One eye wondered away to hunt aracnophobics


Vieni alla mia festa e riportami quell'occhio perduto
Come to my party and bring me back the eyes that I've lost


Non saprei come riconoscerti altrimenti
I wouldn't know how to recognize you otherwise
