IN THE THIRD ROOM
Untitled is part of the 2017 series Welcome to the Jungle, consisting of 3 collages each measuring 40 x 60 cm. The works aim to represent the art system as a “jungle”, in which the artist is called to disentangle himself, with particular attention to the institutional place par excellence, the museum, as an artistic temple that symbolises all the hunger and desire for success of a young author, representing his highest ambition.In the three collages, the Guggenheim (New York), the National Gallery (London) and the Maxxi (Rome) are represented in a natural setting. Surrounding them are cut-outs of people taken from photos of museum audiences. The idea was to reflect, not without irony, on the role of the museum institution, its fascination and seductive power.
