EDITION OF 10
A stainless steel hybrid shape incorporating an
egg and a 12 inch LP. Referential to the famous painting, the “Sacra
Conversazione”, by Piero della Francesca, and at the same time, the

could be a mini-solar system or simply a tautology involving the famous philosophical

EXHAUST - 2009
SINGLE-CHANNEL VIDEO PROJECTION, SOUND,
LOOP 9 MIN.36”.
Several short video extracts from
YouTube; all are amateur video sound tests for car
exhaust pipes. The cars are ordinary cars, not “tuning” cars. Amongst the videos is a model for “Bertocchi Mufflers”. This pseudo-biographical but completely arbitrary and self-referential aspect is a recurrent element in the artist’s work. The useless roar of an engine, a polluting, wasteful, and expensive action – the dissipation of energy and how that relates to the existential condition today.
LE REGIME - 2009
PLASTIC STRAW, BLACK BELGIAN MARBLE, MULTICOLOUR ONIX, TRAVERTINE MARBLE,
40 CM X 30 CM 30 CM
The word “regime" in French can mean "diet" but more commonly refers to a set of conditions, most often of a political nature. This sculpture consists of 5 primary geometric shapes in 5 different types of marble. The idea came from Brancusi’s sculptures many of which seem to have no beginning
and no end and include different elements. The 5 objects are not attached to each other, and thus can be freely repositioned like children’s toy blocks. The last element on top, a big “Slim-Fast”-like glass, has a tiny hole where a plastic straw can be inserted.
The arbitrary choice of including the straw or not changes the meaning of sculpture to either reference self-induced health regimes, or the more subtle forms of political regimes.
USELESS REVOLUTIONS - 2009
DISCO BALL WITHOUT MIRRORS, ELECTRIC
MOTOR, SPOT LAMP
40 CM DIAMETER
A disco ball, where all the mirrors
have been patiently taken off by the artist. The ball turns as normal, but it has become a useless object
floating in space. Once the focal point of any party, its day has passed and its purpose has been altered. Its visual impact now is perfectly inverted from an object that reflected all light to one where no light can escape its absorption.
