    APPARTENENZE “Glasses of water have the same passions as oceans” It is through a kind of surgical analysis, a decomposition, a dissecting of the physical elements taken out of context, that the concept of common belonging is explored. In a society “taken to pieces”, “mêléed”, in which everything seems to have lost its place, we are called on to seek an interpretation of the concept of citizenship which goes beyond the boundaries of its own urban space, a microcosm as a scale image. Citizenship made intimate (with a clear reference to Ron Mueck’s kind of “voyeurism”) to be represented by faces, hands, feet, like topographic maps, imprints that tell a story that is born, lives and evolves in a common, shared interaction. Spallanzani-style observation and representation, totally neutral and objective. Pieces of a puzzle we can put together as we please, drops of water which, the same yet unique, are part of the same ocean. “Glasses of water have the same passions as oceans” (Victor Hugo).

It is through a kind of surgical analysis, a decomposition, a dissecting of the physical elements taken out of context, that the concept of common belonging is explored.
 
In a society “taken to pieces”, “mêléed”, in which everything seems to have lost its place, we are called on to seek an interpretation of the concept of citizenship which goes beyond the boundaries of its own urban space, a microcosm as a scale image.

Spallanzani-style observation and representation, totally neutral and objective. Pieces of a puzzle we can put together as we please, drops of water which, the same yet unique, are part of the same ocean.

“I bicchieri d’acqua hanno la stessa passione dell’oceano”
 
 
È attraverso una sorta di analisi chirurgica, di scomposizione, di sezionamento degli elementi fisici avulsi da un contesto, che viene esplorato il concetto di appartenenza comune.
 
In una società “fatta a pezzi”, “spettinata”, nella quale ogni cosa sembra aver perso il suo posto, siamo chiamati a cercare un’interpretazione del concetto di cittadinanza che vada oltre i confini del proprio spazio urbano, microcosmo come immagine in scala.
La cittadinanza  resa intima (si fa qui palese un richiamo a un certo “voyerismo” di Ron Mueck) per essere rappresentata da volti, mani, piedi come fossero cartine topografiche, impronte che raccontano una storia che nasce, vive e si sviluppa in  una interazione comune
e condivisa.
 
Un’osservazione e rappresentazione "Spallanzaniana", assolutamente neutra e oggettiva. Tasselli di un puzzle che possiamo ricomporre a piacere, gocce d’acqua che, uguali ma uniche, fanno parte dello stesso oceano. 
“I bicchieri d’acqua hanno la stessa passione dell’oceano” (Viktor Hugo).
Ne contengono la memoria.
