Studio per Paesaggio
Over a period of a few months, I posed a large number of indoor plants . By depicting them, I created an herbarium inspired by the old botanical compendiums, where illustration and text often coexist on the same page. What I wanted to do was create a portrait of my generation. Plants, as living entities reduced to ornament, reflect, with their area of action limited only in the perimeter of their vase, our own condition in society. The texts, which examine the points indicated in the drawings, describe distractions, laziness, manic attention to minute details, idealisations, lies, regrets and projective identifications.
