Soggetto senza titolo is a journey.
The body’s journey in search of human being.
It is a stream of consciousness translated into a body that changes its material state and unravels its journey in three movements (present, past, future), where the unreal merges with the real, in one dreamlike dimension.
It’s an intimate, but a the same time open dialogue with those who appear to offer their own gaze. Bodily matter is exposed to a continuous metamorphosis that evolves and transforms. Without a form, or a name, that can limit it. Like an inkblot, which expands without a container, try to search a truth. Go down where it is darker to touch his skin from the inside and there to find the essence, the root of his being…living.
