Tangle, tangle, complicate. And its opposite, unravel, simplify. Born as a spontaneous, immediate, and cheated gesture, these
works are symbolic objects where everything has a beginning. In this infinite repetition of a gesture I find peace.
Birth and death, things
take on a balance between them, creating an uninterrupted / seamless circle /
flow of balance. In them there are moments of friction where the links / paths
/ moments of incessant life / tighten and then again distance themselves. They
represent moments of freedom and moments of loneliness or lack of freedom and
the sense of suffocation but also of perception of security in feeling
embraced, close, intimately connected.
The term "tangle" indicates the
profound meaning of these works. It is the representation of a universal theme
- of thoughts and actions, which an intricate cluster that creates reality -
but also very personal - my being a fragile person and often
"tangled" in his thoughts, and my constant search to order in life.
Some of these works found a place in an old box or
drawer, which I looked for in my family's attics because in those moments they
represented a hidden pain or a desire to keep beautiful memories safe.
Other works instead float in the void.
The "coiling" technique allows you to create
artifacts starting from the use of the hands, without a frame. Widespread
mainly in Africa and also in South and Central America and all areas of South
East Asia where craftsmanship is still strongly present for the creation of
jewels or artifacts in natural fibers to contain food, animals, etc., it then
landed in the world of fiber art.
The technique used is based on the simple concept of having two systems: a passive system (the rope that is wound by the wire)
and an active system (the wire that wraps the rope and creates its structure).
These works I made using yarns wrapped in a rope core
and some are inside old drawers or wooden boxes.
