Luca Petti, FLOWS

Blocks of coloured clay emerge from the River Oglio. Wedges against the current stand out motionless in the river, which they cannot stop. The incessant water relentlessly erodes the surface, dragging fragments of earth with it. It dilutes the colour, which descends into the valley, losing its traces until it is no longer distinguishable among the waves.

They are Cervantesque archetypes, originating in the observation of the progressive erasure of all memory, all signs of time, all ugliness. Whatever has happened, whatever history has unfolded there, the houses are plastered over, the rubble removed. A coat of paint, to forget the past.
