Comment

Admitting mistakes and making a sincere exhibition of them, modifies tempos and contents that define an artist’s corpus. I like to explore the feeling of both fascination and repulsion towards the products of our techno-industrialized society. I try to document private moments of fascination and try to materialize them in an artisanal or non-monumental way, trying to be skeptical with the materiality of the work of art and also searching for its materiality. The tension between analogue and digital aesthetics are central but without nostalgic aspirations. Melancholy and sense of humor plays an important role in my work. By giving the works ‘a melancholy atmosphere belonging to bygone times, thus current present turns immediately into memories’. I like the idea of redeveloping old relationships and emotions in the present.
