A FAILED ATTEMPT TO SAIL TO THE PAST (2017)

This series of four pictures represents the result of an action that took place on a shore in front of Venice, city to which I am bound by biographical reasons and that recalls my past. An improvised raft was assembled, made of found objects, planks and wood. The pictures show the process of construction and following destruction by the sea, with the tide advancing. The work explores the relationship between memory, past and the impossibility to relive it again in reality but in imagination.
