Aluminium, tin, stones

The engravings reveal an imagined version of Ciminà, the town that my family comes from, in an attempt to construct a personal mythology. The work draws inspiration from triptychs, altars, stone tablets, and other objects that preserve information and tell stories. The multiple visual narratives contained in the piece are meant to be contemplated and returned to over time, allowing them to grow and mutate. The rocks and gemstones embedded in its surface replicate topographic elements extracted from family photographs and satellite images, drawing connections with the landscape of Ciminà.
