Artist Statement

IMy work revisits the historical journey developed by the great utopias and ideologies of the twentieth century and their transformation into the fears, the skepticism and the “no future” of contemporary life.

I am interested in History, Sociology and Architecture.  I am curious to explore the notion of ideologies and politics as aesthetically enrooted phenomena. I am looking at monuments and projects which embody a particular vision of the world and the game of power, the tension between what could have been and what finally wasn’t.  There’s a longing for the ideal of a fair and equal society, an idea of nation, repeatedly ill-fated.

I seek, therefore, neither to transform my investigations on architecture or social phenomena into   recipe conceptual projects, nor into a mere illustration of ideas, but to use them as fertilizer for developing a poetics.
