SCULPTURES

« Living and ceasing to live, are imaginary solutions: existence is elsewhere. »

– André Breton

Collateral Solutions is a collection of ambiguous sculptures, made after everyday objects that reference themes such as metamorphosis, fetishism, sexuality and the uncanny.

The series of these objects is potentially infinite: they are visual associations that stem from an emotion or a sensation, rarely from syllogisms or logical combinations.

The series had been originally made for a site-specific project in a historic house in Nuoro, Sardinia, Italy. The house, a Nineteenth-century building with a romantic, but also eerie atmosphere, had old furniture and checkered tiles, a backyard garden, as well as an unfinished building without the roof, that inspired some of the artworks shown in the exhibition.

The series is an ongoing project, adapting to each exhibition project and venue as well as to each painting series, as a three-dimensional development of the bi-dimensional space dedicated to painting.
