Artist Statement

A discourse based on skepticism, doubt, lies and knowledge.

Reality is like 'the flower in the mirror and the moon in the water', according to a Chinese proverb, which describes the emotions produced by deception. However, who or what deceives us, what is ascertained by our knowledge? 

My work questions the seemingly exclusive pairs of reality and fiction, totality and fragment, certainty and doubt, presenting them as a unit. Through a pictorial investigation carried out in photographic and audiovisual media, I intend to create a ritual language capable of expressing my doubts, feelings and contradictions regarding art, culture, reason, morality and society.

La realtà è come il fiore nello specchio e la luna nell'acqua’’, dice un proverbio cinese per descrivere le emozioni prodotte con l'inganno. Ma chi o che cosa sta cercando di ingannare noi, la nostra percezione e la nostra conoscenza?

 

      关于怀疑论,疑问,谎言,还有认知。
      真实就像镜花水月,到底是人或物欺骗我们,还是我们的认知让我们被蒙蔽?
      我的作品试图辩证地将真实和虚假,完整和碎片,确定和怀疑看作一个整体。通过绘画和摄影影像的结合,试图用一种仪式华的语言来表达我对艺术,文化,道理,道德以及社会的怀疑,感受和矛盾。
