C’è un respiro che muove verso se stesso, 2019.
This pictorial research reflects on the life of plants considering them as living and transformative elements. The plant paradigm is shown here as a symbol capable of deconstructing animal and above all anthropocentric narcissism. Architecture, a human relationship tool, is changed and absorbed by the relationship tool of plants: adaptation. Human and plant cognitive and perceptive methods are therefore analysed and superimposed. The title focuses precisely on this aspect of transformation implemented by the reconquest of space, reworking a quote by the Byzantine writer Giovanni Stobeo: “there is a breath that moves itself towards itself and from itself”. In the pictorial series, plants stem from human domestication and are considered in the act of spatial reconquest while phagocytising architectural elements and human ruins.
