Sopra di me il diluvio
Re-thinking the piece as a somewhat magical place where our certainties are misplaced.
With the exhaustion of the post-modern human paradigm, what is suggested here is the appearance of a New Human Being, who looks out upon the archaic, primitive and tribal landscape, of which the African continent is the emblematic representation: an Africa, screaming and violated, which even amid the endless massacres it has endured from time immemorial, still succeeds in restoring its vision of hope.
The work is an amplification of natural phenomena, landscapes that overflow here into a form of lay spirituality, a metaphysics of the body, a pilgrimage of meditation.
