SPECIAL MENTION OF THE JURY, 2015

with the following motivations:

“The sequence of book-chests, small book-albums that are held in safe aluminum frames, has the structure and pace of an installation and asks for a direct relationship with the viewer. It asks to be browsed, and demands for emotional involvement. The relationship between images and writing is the basis of the work and is the theme played in the sense of lightness: the lightness of tiptoe exploration of feelings, a discreet revealing of memories, reflections on the values ​​of life, narrative fragments of far experiences expressed and sublimated in the art language.”
