Impeccable white volumes stand for the human self in a suspended state of self-evaluation. Personal history and inner journeys are inscribed on the pure surface to give it individuality. Forgotten details resurface, old relationships are seen in a new light, facts and faces get new meanings. Rediscovering old sensory and affective coordinates breaks the harmony between external and internal time while realigning one with one’s history. A nostalgic feeling underlies the process of remembering. It determines a certain idealization that eventually becomes part of an ensemble that helps one defy time, transform the transitory into permanence. Each piece is a collage of memories, voices, musical sounds, answers, pieces of life, hope: the visual representation of a poem that nobody wrote.
