+ Italian + media artist + in Rotterdam +

Releasing from the religious cultural baggage which influences Western education, my artistic research concerns the role of art in society as an ethical and secular ideal to be pursued in community life. Part of my practice reflects upon the relationship between contemporary issues, such as identity, migration and integration, and their visual representation in society. My work questions the traditional religious meanings of related images in order to perpetuate an ethical teaching renovated according to our contemporary matters.  My production results in a motley combination of text, pictures, moving images and sounds, staging a personal universe where ethic is continuously questioned and discussed.
