Plants seem to have their own kind of temporality and sensoriality. At first, we think a plant doesn’t move or sense anything, but seeing it evolving in a time lapse video, you witness it being fully alive and actively responding to its environment.
In the same manner, my work has its own temporality. The art piece is made to last, but it will shift over time, almost imperceptibly.
SERENE WILDNESS or the sensory cosmos of an evening in Tuscany
This is the beginning of a series that started one autumn evening in the Valdicchiana region of Tuscany, where the wind, the sun held in the ground and the imminent storm, electrified the air and thrilled the birds. This brief moment, elusive but tangible in my body, made me want to recount the landscape from a sensorial angle.
My work is then a result from proceeding between different temporalities: the present moment, the memory of my body, and my imagination.
