MEGABOX, Sculpture installated, 1992, diameter 180 cm, wood, serigraphie on paper 26 colours, iron, wheel, locomotion system with iron gear, stereo recorder. I was inspired by the boxes that were used in 1700, small symbolic everyday objects upholstered / upholstered with canvas or colored / decorated paper, in which small "things" with romantic / nostalgic function, with personal intimate emotional load were preserved. , precious sentimental memories of loved ones, such as hairstyles, small photos, etc. The conceptual operation is to enlarge a small object for everyday use, a spatial extension with the intention not to reproduce the reality, but to suggest it, changing -the meaning.After the material transformation and the ideology underlie the poetic moment, and the metamorphosis becomes a metaphor. It is an installed sculpture, made in 1993, with the technical collaboration of Arch. Pietro Bagli Pennacchiotti. Made of wood, it is composed of 2 elements, lid and container, connected by an iron gear. The two elements are placed on the rotating side, the dynamics, on 5 wheels that allow the movement, manipulation of the lid around the body of the "box". I upholstered the Megabox with paper that I printed by hand, in the artistic silkscreen technique - the direct method, in layers - in 26 colors, the French text: "OVAJAIAIAIII ... Entendez-vous, je vous dis quelquechose". The first word is invented and onomatopoeic, without beginning and without end, while the phrase "Entendez-vous, Je vous dis quelque chose" represents my desire to communicate, considering that art is, above all, a form of communication, and , therefore, confirmation of the importance of its existence as a necessity. The character of the letters of the text is that used by the Italian national daily newspaper "la Repubblica". I composed this text like a newspaper page - the vehicle of communication and diffusion: rhythmically and repetitively, without beginning and without end, thinking about the infinite passage of time. I installed in MEGABOX a stereo recorder, choosing "RAPATITUDES" music, rap music, spoken, without beginning and end, in French with an African accent. In order to "give voice" to the text and especially to the transmission, diffusion of the idea of communication of my artistic belief. dimm: 180 cm diameter; 90 cm thick (when closed), and when open and mobile; 80 cm box thickness and 30 cm lid thickness.
