Accettati a project on portraying conscience. An investigation about the limit of auto representation between inside and outside, which includes

drawings, painting, costumes and photos

collection. This project is the result of a collaboration between different persons and also some artists who I met long my way. It’s an intimate trip. It’s an unbelievable research on the world of monsters.

It has born with the aim to do some questions about the fear perception.

Who are the monsters? where they live? why they grow up in yourself?

At first, I try in my monsters encyclopedia, by investigating in my dream world. When the inhibitory mask get down and I see the wonderful glimpse. I portray and describe them because probably they want be remembered, as the greek gods did. At the end of the visions, I wish to sew them, dress up, and to research the location where celebrate our reception. We narrate this by photos and recording sound.

In the same time of the personal research I use to develop a collective project.

We could create your monsters.
I invite everyone to explore “monstrum”.The fantasy of children and their relationship with monsters will be suitable to educate us.

This is a different way to meditate on what we hide. It’s a personal think to live the space, break through, an impulse. Play with something of private. If we stop in the deep oblivion, our intimity will be destroyed.

Do you remember the sweet suspence of a japanese film where the evil showed the honorable friendship? If we separate the monster from the bad it’s hard to done a judgment. If we think about a hero, it has the monster power. Now the knowledge of the balance between evil and good probably would be conceived. At the beginning the monstrous was like prodigious, wonderful.

The hero, the enemy and the anti-hero? There isn’t the time about hero, it’s already the “anti-hero days”, those between doubts and frenzy know how to speak.Then we can identify the monster: would you understand bad and good? The hero, the enemy and the anti-hero? There isn’t the time about hero, it’s already the “anti-hero days”, those between doubts and frenzy know how to speak.
