Synecdoche” is centered on the feeling of sacred, intended from a universal perspective – not necessarily linked to religion.

This project aims at being a collective artwork.

INTERVIEW ABOUT “SYNECDOCHE” AND RAMA ART RESIDENCY

A talk about my work and experience at RAMA – Art Residency in Maceira and Alfeiria, Portugal.

Filmed by artist and RAMA’s coordinator Paulo Brighenti.

October-November 2020: Art Residency at RAMA.

"Through a reflection on painting in a broader perspective, including pictorial installation and, in it, physical phenomena such as shadows and reflections, I’m investigating the dimensions of life / death / sacred / memory through the rhetoric of the double, and their experience in the contemporary context. During my residency at RAMA, I intend to deepen these aspects in the local dimension, through a specific research on the region’s museology and history. "
