“ho fatto giallo”


The aim of my research is to work on memory, childhood and our contemporaneity.

In the past kneeling on the dried chickpeas was used as a punishment method. Still now bags filled with chickpeas are systematically used for postural corrections, becoming paradoxically symbol of dualistic and contradictory condition of our society. We suffer to feel free, we are always looking adrenaline and extreme sensations to be happy, to feel alive.

The amount of bags represents the mass production and the nowadays consumerist market. Children of capitalism, but at the same time children of slaves made in China. Everything is produced with discipline. The educational and production methods can coexist.
