Semer récolter is a work from my Antihero series.
It’s simply a chair pushed by a ladder against a made white wall. The school chair is made of Formica, like a typical 60’ Swiss-designed furniture made by the material Formica that Italians imported when emigrated to Swiss to work. The ladder is a typical countryside ladder from south Italy.
The work can show how some generation sacrifices themselves at work to send the next generation to an elevated abroad education. The wall is the reason and the impeccable result of such sacrifices.
Here is a brief explanation of my antihero series :
The anti-heroes series is intended to be a parody of traditional sculpture and the language with which we decode it. Composition, subject, material, dynamism, weight: all these terminologies clash with the mediocrity of the materials and with the title that strikes sublime ridicule. The recurring theme of gravity becomes evident: the fraction of a second of precarious equilibrium before the objects collapse.
These objects, which lend themselves to a minimum of mechanical functioning, are based on fantasies and representations that can be provoked by the performance of unconscious acts. Acts of realization from which the pleasure derived can hardly be explained. In all the cases analyzed, his acts correspond to fantasies and desires clearly defined as carnal. But the balance is particularly difficult when it comes to things and objects because they are rebellious, imperturbable, idiotic. The anti-heroes are there, impassive.
