My latest collaboration with Martina Merlini.
Martina and I have been invited to an event that took place in my town Rimini, Italy at the beginning of July. The two curators transformed Villa Manzi, a dismissed hotel in front of the beach, in a 3-stories container of art, photography and music.
We took over a room and filled it with a blend of our (so) different styles, turning an old and modest space with a view on the seaside to -let’s call it- a mess in three dimensions to surround the viewer.
It’s been super fun and challenging to work with Martina, especially trying to achieve a consistent harmony between her informal work and my figurative pieces.
Have a look at the entire photoset here:

“Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real”
“We die to each other daily. What we know of other people Is only our memory of the moments During which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same Is a useful and convenient social convention Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.”

 “Even bedridden, she was the most beautiful old lady I’d ever seen. There she was with no makeup but still beautiful skin, big blue eyes and little hands fluttering like small birds in the air. She smelled beautiful too, like roses.” - Sacha Briquet
