Scorcio per un punto di riferimento, 2014
Scorcio per un punto di riferimento, erased paper collage which consists of destructuring the pictorial sign through erasure strokes, cut-out, trimming and re-composition. The result is a work made up of modulated fragments reorganised into a new order, the way to operate the external world and regain its possession.
