THE BEAUTY OF DESTRUCTION

VILLA CONTEMPORANEA - MONZA

15/07/22 - 03/08/22

My solo show “The beauty of destruction” deals with the impact of the economy in a society centered on money, which I see as a weapon, through bullet installations.

The shell and bullet installations FREEDOM, WAR, YES highlight the contradiction between the beauty and preciousness of the elements of which they are composed with the purpose of death for which they were originally designed and produced. 

There is a need on the part of the artist to reject the evil and violence inherent in war irreversibly nullifying the function of weapons. 

The military knife has the blade cut and replaced by a hologram; you can appreciate the reflections on the processing of the blade but you can not get hurt. 

In the same way the bullets with the perfect ogive are shiny and gold chrome: they can be admired in their shine and aesthetic perfection but not disassembled from the sculptures that compose.
