1st PORZELLANBIENNALE IN MEISSEN
OPENING 16 JULY 2016
An extraordinary experience to be chosen to participate in the first porcelain biennial of the historic ceramic city of Meissen in the Albrechtsberg, where European porcelain was invented! An enormous thanks to Olaf Fieber and the organising committee.
SCULPTOR, PAINTER, CERAMICIST
My sculptures seek to represent as archetypal the critical behaviors of contemporary man and their environmental consequences, creating a series of figures emblematic of contemporary life. The statues express the condensation of a visual language contaminated by surrealist solutions, pop proliferations, and archaic symbolism in the ordered/harmonic structure of ancient sculptures. I carry the aesthetic ‘baggage’ of the Italian art tradition that requires values of equilibrium and harmony which I negate to then reaffirm with new compositional inventions. What I find seductive about ceramics is that, while expressing modern concepts, I can maintain contact with the technique’s archaic roots, amalgamating historical memory and the present.
