Workshop intensivo di 10 giorni, una vera e propria seduta di approfondimento sulla memoria individuale rielaborata creativamente in forma di costume, che quindi oltrepassa i limiti dell’oggetto “vestito” per diventare installazione e performance.

10-day intensive workshop, a real in-depth session on the individual memory creatively reworked in the form of custom, which then goes beyond the bounds of the “dress” to become installation and performance.

La mia istallazione che ho chiamato Simbiosi, è stato uno studio legato al ricordo, al nostro modo di interagire con il mondo esterno e con gli oggetti, che inevitabilmente diventano parte integrante del nostro vissuto, ecco perché ho creato un corpo/abito legato ed entrato in simbiosi indissolubilmente con l’ambiente e gli oggetti circostanti.

I called my installation Symbiosis, a study linked to memory and to the way we interact with the outside world and the objects that will inevitably become an integral part of our lives, that’s why I created a body / dress tied and entered inextricably in symbiosis with the environment and surrounding objects.
