Resti d’ infanzia

 

Sculptures of small and fantastic animals, a kind of fossils, ancestral creatures with the features of harmless games.
The objects of childhood become metonymies of what we have been and of our fears, our fantasies and our dreams.
The young artist works by stratification: from the rough and raw matter magically emerge forgotten objects, fantastic creatures that populated our dreams and our children’s games.
The memory appears nebulous and without contours: our eye has to work hard to recover its shape and reconstruct its history.
Thus we find ourselves collecting fragments of our experience, digging hard sediment matrices to bring back to light the impalpable tenderness of childhood.
