My work for Roome Service at Reggia di Caserta curated by Pia Lauro.
This work is the union of two researches that I have been pursuing for a long time.
It s the mix of "Dynamic Influences" and "Obstacles to elevation" (a work i start with my big friend and artist @thisislimbo about an allegory of common use tools in the practice of new muralism )
The use the scaffold as a tool to realize the wall painting but also as "ready made" that influences the painting itself with its shadows emphasizing the importance and centrality of the process inside the new muralism at the expense of the aesthetic result.
Lighting of the workpiece is entirely entrusted to the spectator that by moving the lights can change the entire lighting of the work.
During the exhibition the scafold will.be desmanteled in front of the public as a performance.
The scaffold also becomes a tribute to the historic show that has always been in these rooms "Terrae Motus" (a collection donated from Gianni Amelio to the museum after the devastating earthquake of Irpinia in 1980 ) which uses the scaffold as a symbol of the displacement in new spaces of this exhibition.
among the artists participating in this historic exhibition :Josept Beuys, Andy Warhol ,Keith Haring,Robert Rauschenberg,Michelangelo Pistoletto,Jannis Kounellis,Christian Boltanski,Richard Long and many more.

"Dynamic influences" series . "Milano Nord"
The idea is to create a tension between a big banner and an abandoned architecture in northern Milan.
The aggressive push of the wind and the consequent tearing of the banner puts in motion a sculptural movement that is constantly transformed.
