My work studies the basic mechanisms that rule feelings, focusing mainly on the dynamics generated by emotional connections and sexuality.
I make emotional worlds that evolve through a broken and uninhibited narrative structure in which I mix references from classic iconography, random elements, everyday banality, my experience as well as my dreams.
Video animation, drawing, and sculpture coexist in my installations and articulate an expressive universe rooted in the complex emotional and symbolic content I bring to it
My research touches on the expressive dimension of the spaces and in particular on the places I got the chance to visit.
I aim to collect all the symbolic meanings from the location’s physical configuration by placing little plasticine dolls as the characters of my video animations.
The attempt to explore and adhere to the location sometimes evolves into a site specific activity in which I leave the dolls after a last farewell photo. By doing so I commit them to the unique destiny that awaits them in that place.
