Bhu

October, 2007
The title of my first retrospective show in Italy is the indoeuropean root of the Greek word physis (nature), and was chosen to illustrate the creative process at that time, a sort of visual etymology of reality. Nature, with a capital N, was the central theme of my research.

The title of my first retrospective show held in Italy – Bhu – is the indoeuropean root of the Greek word physis (nature), and was chosen to illustrate the creative process at that time, a sort of visual etymology of reality. Nature, with a capital N, was the central theme of my research. The creative process was circular, starting from the whole only to return to the whole through a process of fragmentation, a reunion of details. The work appears as a mosaic of photographic tiles, at times falling from above, at times leaning against a wall, or even extending along the ground. The exhibition occupied two floors and a special project space of My Own Gallery in Milano.
