Three Channels (Trompe l’OEil)
My work speaks of a widespread and unavoidable condition of creative expression: the failure. Being in contact with other artists is an opportunity for me to confront with their (even unconscious) way of expressing this failure. I believe that direct experience of art is a necessary requirement for the production of new forms of art, especially when these investigate the limits of art itself. In the end, collaborating with other artists would give me the opportunity to start parallel projects and use new languages.
