installation view

Eight ceramic sculptures (all 2019) hint at phallic, vaginal and anal forms. They are dangling from the ceiling on thin chains with small, black bells hanging at their base. The work’s mobility, given by the hanging system that permits the occupation of the aerial space, unies with their sonority: the bells jingle vividly when people bump into them, as the ancient tintinnabula of Roman period. Between the phallic forms and the little bells, the tintinnabula has the function of a proto-alarm, warding off the misfortunes of the places where they are installed.
