Carpet


→ Installation acrilic spray color on thermal blanket 210 x 155 cm
2016

EN
The work Carpet is made out of a thermal blanket, a material that is specifically used to cover bodies in situations of emergency. A motif has been drawn on the surface of the blanket with acrylic spray paint. It recalls a typical arabesque, a traditional decoration used in Middle-Eastern architecture or on Persian carpets.
The golden surface of Carpet reflects light and its chromatic and material element gives the work a precious as well as fragile look. The combination of matter and image evoke a symbol of protection and prayer intrinsic in the work.

Carpet é una coperta termica, materiale utilizzato solitamente per coprire i corpi in caso di emergenza.
Il disegno realizzato con colore acrilico spray è un tipico arabesco, decorazione tradizionale utilizzata nell'architettura in Medio Oriente o come motivo per i tappeti persiani. Il materiale riflette la luce e per le sue caratteristiche cromatiche e materiche restituisce a Carpet un aspetto tanto prezioso quanto fragile e povero. Questa relazione tra materia ed immagine suggerisce un simbolo di protezione e al tempo stesso di preghiera intrinseco nell'opera.
