" On one side, I am the narrator that opens the way to different interpretations, trying to incentivise the spectator to uncover his own path throughout the multiple layers of significant. On the other side I'm a “collector” of familiar objects that I modify underlining their unfamiliar content.
As a result of this practice, recently I keep focusing on the fetishism of the object itself and the uncanny aspect that leads the spectator to feel uncomfortable in front of a “fictional object”.
I took skin and texture as starting points to explore the interaction between the surface of the object, its thingness, and the meaning that we used to attach to it. Investigating the object’s dichotomy and playing with skin colours and materiality in order to give a tactile feeling. I experimented with different materials, such as leather, fabrics, porcelain, wax and found objects."
