2012  Dreams of Escape @ The Impossible Heap, Galerie 8, London

Are we near to a change in History? Do we prefer this exhausting and prolonged age of decadence to a near future we feel possibly catastrophic?

I don’t want to choose, I want to live, I would like to escape.

‘Dreams of Escape’ relates with this sense of idleness and the possible directions of escape. Suicide and dictatorship – at least of the ego – disguised in a fake selfish harmony seems to be some of the possible choices.

But I hope to have still some open sea to sail through, it doesn’t matter if I will land on a desert.

2011  Da grande sarò morto – Solo Exhibit @ Zelle Arte Contemporanea, Palermo

The title ‘when I grow up, I’m dead’ refers to the need to display a work currently in progress, in which the collages chosen for the exhibit are ‘seeds’ for future projects, for new directions in my research. These are the cards on the table. Ready. Go.
