Presentation

"In this project, that I have composed as a path, I tried to represent the struggle every human must face every day in order to reach and maintain their freedom.

The struggle between those that are external impositions that, at various ages and in various stages of our lives we have been assigned to different figures and reality, and the internal drives that we were born with and that ancestrally accompany mankind in its evolution.

Ii is given as assumed the fact that, for his own evolution, man must be able to mediate between these two aspects of life: personal fulfillment (consisting of various factors such as the sentimental, the sexual, the business and economic) and what that the society that surrounds it (starting from the first idea of society set up by the mother/infant up to the concept of global society) considers as its values.

It may happen that, in the course of these mediations, and because of the most various events, the man cannot find a balance (whether related to the overall situation or to a particular situation), and then he finds himself unbalanced. In this way, the individual is likely to be crushed by guilt in one of its various representations (given that guilt can take many forms and go to hit different realities depending on the subject in which is revealed), because the society today is a society that (as perhaps never before has happened) does not allow the error.

And unfortunately, increasingly peppered with rules increasingly complex, there is a growing difficulty to listen to our instinctual part. Weighed down by guilt, the man finds himself more and more away from the joy of instinct, spontaneity and originality of being.

And that is why I conceived this project, "dividing" it in three sections: the first section consists of the crosses that go to symbolise the sense of guilt, a second section in which these "exploded cubes" want to represent the “unsuppressibleness” of joy, a third and final section that consists of detailed photographs of the objects of the first two sections, printed on polymer photo mounted on aluminum foil with a mirror finish, so that the person who observes this mirrors can see himself reflected in those details and deepen with the image of himself, what is the struggle between imposition and instinct in his being."
