Salse di Nirano
Salse di Nirano, Italy

A performative act conducted at the clay springs in Salse di Nirano that comes from an intimate dialogue with the landscape and from chromatic subtraction as a supernatural code for interpreting reality. A simple gesture, like laying a white fabric at the foot of a forest, translates into a necessary expressive action that amplifies the perception of reality through the use of a virtual device. Grey and green cancel each other out through white, and are revealed for what they are. It is a sort of useless gesture born of lightness of play as an approach to spatiality, and which finds its expression in visual simplification, finally reaching its synthesis.
