Shogh ian - Slimi
From within seemingly repetitive sequences emerge unique characters, each with its own story and morphology, open to infinite possibilities of new encounters and confrontations among one another. Together they form a sort of tribe, a group of misfits from a world halfway between the cosmos and my childhood scribbles, an elaborate letter from the "Sky People" to myself-- or maybe the other way round.
“unearthly - on earth” is an exploration of this personal iconography, across different scales and textures.
