Combinazioni di figura, 2023

My artistic research is based around the relation between human beings and nature and investigates the dimension of travel and exploration as experiences of knowledge. A focal aspect in my practice is the in-depth knowledge of places, experienced through wandering and lingering.

My interests encompass several disciplines, from natural sciences, such as ethnology and geology, to geography, cartography, literature and poetry. In particular, my works are the outcome of long-lasting projects that evoke the dilated rhythms of nature in juxtaposition with the brief rhythms of human existence: from educational and cognitive processes to the transformations of lichens, glaciers, and geological maps, moving from the micro to the macro, the two systems that together constitute the world we inhabit.

The recurring use of sewing, on one hand, represents an attempt to transpose the slow pace of nature and relational processes; on the other hand, it becomes a metaphor for the tangle of relationships, histories, sensitivities and cultural specificities.

Since 1998 I have been engaging in a series of projects based on participation and relationship: collective operations that develop around single objects, catalysts of energies, experiences, memories.
