THE CONCEPT

​​​​​​​
“Edea” is a written and visual content story of two different cultures in an internal dialogue, who meet in a place intended to implosion, between Atlantis/Ulysses and ET/Wall-E. In the middle silences, solitary lands, the hope expressed in a little unknown life never seen before: the thread of life. The arcane that connects to the new “Self”.
The dilemma: tabula rasa or sad acceptance.
By leaving the ground the universe is closer. But no return.
Each step will crumble the previous.
So the deep sense and questioning of humankind, without gender dialectics.

 

THE MEANING

The greatest lesson of life can be love, meant to be universal. The moral of the story raises questions about freedom perceived and commonly accepted, so our nature, the real emancipation, and relationships. In the end, peace, given and taken, the largest act of love and freedom.
Love is definitely the allegorical matter that allows transmutation, change. Humus, but never a bond of ill addictions.

Superlative Relatives on the Moon

Portfolio 2017.

 

 

“A handful of Siena
recalled our times,
shady crochet
of barren disillusionment.
You. Suavely
pulsating
in the glacial epilogue
of the turbid
detachment,
your hands
were leaving
wind harmonies,
towards bejewelled
seas.
Along the Icelandic way
a piano
caressed
the vibrating strings
of my pain,
from pallor of a mute
lane.
Asleep in bittersweet torpidity
I teemed with life,
at the foot of majestic slopes
and harsh profiles.
Whistle
in pastel tones
raising
crumbs of Ocean,
my eyes were closed
to hear the echo
of flapping wings.”

Stitch

 

I don’t see.
Here the sensual no-go area
lies,
where the imagination goes wild
with desire.

The human condition soothes
our instincts,
imprisoned by artificial enclosures
of civilization,
domesticated confidential
fears,
battered by
tight spaces.
