About The Artwork

AUTOMA KLK-23 is a androgynous bronze bust, which represents the duality of life and death. In the same way as the Greek theater masks, the joy of life alternates with the sadness of death. It has two doors with a hinge mechanism and it opens to show a heart inside. Francesca is interested in life and death dichotomy, and while most of her sculptures celebrate life and all its facets, this particular serie is about how death allows us to transform and transcend. Also, sometimes death is hidden behind close doors, but, by opening that doors, we can reveal secrets and discover the truth. This piece has a black-green and golden patina. This is a serie of 8 pieces, the patina is handmade and may vary a little, and it is one of its characteristics and beauties. The size includes the marble base.

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.
