CINQUE DI FIORI
A floral playing card, a fragment of a garden enclosed in the room where many years ago the artist first exhibited his ceramics at Casa Testori. There are no longer underwater mines to welcome the viewer into the room, there are flowers immersed in lush vegetation. The ceramics thus attempt to compete with the tropical flora, in a continuous regeneration of colours that challenges nature (here controlled and kept alive by sensors and electronic systems), trying to blend in and steal its intimate beauty.
Cinque di fiori, 2016, selected tropical flora, irrigation digital sensor, water, felt, PVC, engobes on clay, led light cm 200x260x40
