The abstract geography appearing on a window-pane, on whose surfaces time has been settling signs and shapes of dust, plaster and saltiness, is a symbolic and existential border. Found in Imperia in the studio of the artist, the window-pane is opened in an horizontal dimension becoming a place of building, recomposition and sharing of a travel, of distant places and identities.
Inhabiting atlas: through the window-pane is an ongoing project, that starts from a collection of everyday objects found or exchanged during a journey across various cities and places. Each object is embroidered retracing the signs and shapes present on the window-pane. The embroidering, process of appropriation, slow and
meditative practice, seizes the ephemeral nature of the objects and their stories.
Inhabiting atlas: through the window-pane is nomadic and it is conceived to travel and to enlarge.
