Work of art I would like to make

Born in a land of Europe that was a melting pot of three different cultures, the Latin, te Balkan and the Middle-European, I grew up in a cosmopolitan city, Trieste, a place where contamination and hybridization were not only cultural but an integral part of the genetic code. My personal history, together with an unquenchable curiosity about the world around me, have driven my research and my studio practice towards the topic of globalization. The ambiguity of the process of globalization, the Manichaean juxtaposition of conflicting and contradictory aspects always present in its epiphenomena costantly challenge and nurture my interest. In my late works I have privileged a political approach and I am developing further pieces in this direction. Referring to Carol Hanisch's writing "The Personal Is Political" I like to transfer my housewife's experience in art, recycling household waste or transforming every day gestures in creative acts. My next work will be an installation of dozens of exploited human beings made with squeezed tubes of tomato paste and cornflour dough on a fisherman net.
