About The Artwork

La Vida – Choose is a bronze bust, with 4 different hands. Many layers of significance are contain in this piece. The hair compose the words LA VIDA, that in Spanish mean LIFE. Also she has the word choose on the right part of the head. The artist plays with the words, inviting to choose, not to choose life, but to choose whatever you think is good for you, because life is a choice. Also, the piece is a beautiful interactive game when yu can CHOOSE what to do with it, moving the 4 hands around (literally they can turn) and also pick the hand you prefer in any given moment to communicate. The contrast between the golden polish and the dark black and gray patinas speaks about contrasts, that somehow give LIFE meaning and worth. The aesthetics could remind steampunk, where elegance and decadence of pasta and future meet Any piece is handmade so the patina could be a little different from the picture. The sculpture dimensions include the pedestal size.

STATEMENT: Francesca Dalla Benetta's work is characterized by mixed anatomies and forms. Human faces and bodies are combined with different textures, skins and elements, giving rise to hybrid beings. Through her aesthetics, in balance between the classic and the surreal, the artist studies the themes of transformation, sense of belonging and self-perception, the ability to adapt, stereotypes and categorization. She searches for the fine line that separates personal identity from social conventions, sanity from madness, studying the differences between perception and reality. Francesca's figures are a look inward and out of control, they are a way of containing the uncontainable. The stories of each character, isolated in an intimate and unreal dimension, are reflections on the identity of misfits and the many facets of being. As an artist, her most important task is to communicate and stimulate a different way of feeling and thinking. She mainly resorts to sculpture because it is a lasting solidity in contrast to the volatility of the mind.
