The timeless


Carlo Sini said that it is the word that exorcizes death through rites. And so it is that, amid harmonic stammers set in counterpoint to each other, we find ourselves buried in a space beyond time or in the midst of temporal forms that do not need space. Here we find immortality cradled in the shadow of a burning breath that chews inaudible sounds waiting to be collected. Where previously liquid flame flowed, now lies, like a vestal, the one who has the task of taking care of the manifestation of the divine. An imperturbable mourner crossed by repeated formulas with an ascetic flavor welcomes death and takes leave of it in a mysterious blessing. Thus, the image buried among the debris of finitude takes place in the calamity: the healing ritual takes possession of the tragic and reshuffles it in the whiteness of the liquid which interprets the primordial nourishment in favor of the two births. Reborn after death, therefore, in the lights of an arcane gesture that restores breath to those who have irretrievably lost it.

Director Statement

The creative process is inspired by the folds of time, where the flow of time expands, becomes suspended and relates to the morphology and anthropology of the landscape.
The lyric of the pictorial image is revealed, remains in the retina of the eye to unfold and become naked to the appearance of things. The image changes in silence, the relationship with it is always ephemeral, with the urgency of having to stop something before it disappears.
Technique is never at the forefront of the creative flow, it is subordinate to the process, it is the image that suggests how it can be worked and through work thought takes shape, with experiments and techniques not always academic or formal.
