TRAPANI SHOW

the making of -
lion-line
studio log / sketches

the starting point of this work was the city of trapani and most precisely its tradition of making salt.

the salt cleans, heals and is an important alchemic element, traditionally represented by the green lion.

these drawings and pictures (of muld) are an attempt to grasp the colorful and dynamic processes matter
undergoes from one state to another.

room number 5 in the trapani old fish market; i was lucky enough to have a whole room just for myself; i had only taken some drawings with me and knew that they wouldn't work in a church, but it wasn't the point of this show anyway.what i wanted from this experience was to get together with the other artprocess artists and see what we could do together...

first thing was to spread out the material on the floor and imagine what it would look like in this space.

i had taken only drawings to trapani, and when i "won" a whole space, i decided to "complete" the work on the salt studies with some pictures i did in the seminario.
they are "muld" pictures, bits of a wall with muld, a chemical reaction where salt had been envolved. it was green and looked quite interesting to me.

choosing drawings...i decided to take all those who had a great amount of green and discard the others...showing the transformation from a salt chrystal into a lion, into a line...a green line.

on the right side i decided to hand the muld pictures; they looked better when disposed as a rectangle, then when just in a line...

then there was the central wall; i had drawings on the left, pictures on the right...and had somehow to get to a conclusion of this series of transformations...as the last drawing i had done was a green line, i heard to my master's voice from above, who told me i definitely had to do something tri-dimensional. so i bought some green plasticine and did my green line. at this point my friend jacques montel was (as he had been the whole time while putting up the show) a great help to do a nice and quick job.

i think that after so much work, in the end the space looked quite tidy and straight...and i fell in love so much with a green line!

the right-side was quite abstract, although there were two green lion pictures of a bronze sculpture of trapani's piazza garibaldi, the place i steped out of the bus which took me there from the airport.

how can one person enjoy so much looking at a green line??? i must say i had the temptation of using only plasticine in this space and forgetting about the "process"; but that will be done the next time.

it wasn't as perfect as i wanted it to be, but i've learnt a lot. thank you, jacques!

this angle is the "explanation" why this line is there.

i know my work wasn't a straight line as i wanted it to be, so i decided to write a little explanation, nothing too long, but a couple of short and precise sentences about those images. 07.07.07 is/was also an important date to me, so i wanted to underline it properly.

i told many artist's friends about art process. some of them even put their works in the website; but i was very happy that tommaso garavini did it too and decided to take part on the show; he was also of great importance on deciding what and how to do things in the church. he did a lot of free climbing in trapani.

mr sammartano checking out if i had done a good job after he trusted me so much, having given me such an important space to work.

on piazza garibaldi i met pluto. he also loved to have an 'aperitivo' at corrado's by the sunset/moonrise. i was very pleased to see him in the opening, as i hadn't had any time for an aperitivo that evening.
