Screen (First Victims Playground)

The work was designed and built over a period of about two years. During this time infinite interconnected themes have been touched, for example: art and psychology; architecture and memory; shape and color. The work is the evolution of the exhibition Terrasanta Relief, where the panels engraved by the format of gates, doors and rosettes, are hung on the walls with the attempt to widen the boundaries of the exhibition and mental space of the spectator. The physical crossing of the support, the incision, wants to be the metaphor of an awareness of what is hidden in the unconscious. In Paravento (F.V.P.), inlay and engraving coexist on the front and back of the work. It is not conceived as a wall but rather as a filter, a fluid boundary, a threshold. The fifteen panels suggest this interaction of body and mind. The work becomes a playground, a device for playing free associations.
