fruits, 2023-ongoing

fruits is a cycle of ephemeral works made by tattooing trauma and words to exorcise on apples and pears. During the exhibition time, apples and pears are subjected to a process of organic degradation, thus accomplishing what could be called a sublimation - of the trauma, as well as of the body on which it is inscribed. Each work takes, from time to time, its title from the sequence of tattooed words, forming a kind of litany.
