OCTO collective exhibition was the chance for me to present #KIZUNA,
a collection of works some of which created in collaboration with the artisan Claudio Lamagni.
Kizuna is a Japanese word that literally means "bond", whose ideogram (kanji) was chosen by Japan as the symbol of the year in 2011 following some important natural disasters that have involved the nation. A concept that includes the issues of interdependence and the loss of the self aimed at finding oneself in others.
We merged our expressive languages to communicate a personal vision strongly linked to Zen and the concept of body-mind-soul as ONE element. The heart is the key element throughout our collection, the archetype of love and genuine emotions, as well as of exchange and pulsating vital energy.
