Description of work

We have been working on the Earth; we loved the Earth because we have lived from the Earth.
Now, between the Earth and us, we let – hypnotized, passive – other elements intervene. We keep growing away, although we are part of the Earth and are created by it.
As a representative of a generation for which the soil is only known in the form of cement or asphalt, I put my feet on the soil again and I send small fragments, reminders of a tameless truth that lives in parallel with me.
Whatever I do, the leaves and the flowers need the light, the soil needs the stone, the colors are there, the life has a source, it is out there, not in this room, and I can see it.
