From the late nineties he exhibited all over the world from Athens to San Paolo, New York to Montreal. Besides his works are in the permanent collections including the MoMA-Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Saatchi Gallery in London, Burger Collection in Hong Kong, the Museum of Castilla y Leon, the Spregel Museum in Hannover. His art of inspiration from the history of cinema and art. Using the language of film builds a surreal dimension where the provocation and irony lead the viewer into curious and unique places. His Manifesto This admirably summarizes his art. Shot in 12 days in 2014 in Berlin, it was also presented as a feature film to Sundance festival in January 2017 and the bologna Biografilm Festival in October of the same year.
The installation is divided into 13 large screens each, through a character, It expresses a different story. After a prologue unroll all female characters with the exception of one male. Monologues that gradually add up becoming the choral narration of today's society, seeking answers to questions from the contemporary age. And here is the artistic provocation which incorporates the texts of artistic manifestos and not of the twentieth century. Dadaism, Futurism, Situationism, Dogma 95, Fluxus, until the The Communist Manifesto, along with the individual reflections of artists such as Umberto Boccioni, Claes Oldenburg, André Breton and other, fill the flow of words in an overwhelming. The critique of a society that seems to come at the end of a journey, and therefore obliged to start all over again, It adds to the discussion of the role of the artist.
So the homeless, la broker, the working of a waste incineration plant, the CEO, punk, the scientist, the speaker at a funeral, the puppeteer, the mother of a conservative family, choreographer, Television journalist and teacher evoke dreams, excite, interrogate the present with the voices of the past, referring to the possible new dimension of surrealtà. Here comes the intense involvement of wave that invests the viewer, thanks to the extraordinary presence of Cate Blanchett who plays all female figures. The talented and versatile actress manage to live human beings so different and contextualized in unexpected areas, so as to enhance a game of contrast and opposites that feeds the thought and reflection.
The surprise of this exhibition is that it is not necessarily important to know all of Futurism and Dadaism or other movements, you warn, anyway, such as statements produce a new energy because it ignored, and reflection will be more fruitful.
