  • Italy (b. 1987 in San severino marche (mc))
  • Currently in Codroipo (UD), Italy.



My works come from the research of a space or a place to interact with, hiding unexpected situations. Like in a puzzle, every interesting element participate in the creation of a narration, finding its principal expression in the analysis of artistic language. In my path photography is the medium that I use to collect notes, to gather those first elements that will later be useful to develop my research. These images, overlapping each others, form a proper memory, a sort of archive to compose my work and to elaborate details that will shape the process of creation.
Photography and sculpture equally compose my installations: they can tell the history of a place, the possibility to measure a space through my own body or the skill of a material to disguise itself with the forces of geological processes. Photography is placed side by side with other media not to sustain itself but to be completed. To work with different media, to make languages coexist and continuously trespassing borders, let me create connections of sense in the gap existing between their characteristics. The research of balance between the three-dimensional sculptural installation aspect and the bidimensionality of photographic medium participate to my personal creation of a new vision of ensemble.
