An original piece from the series “Code”, oil on paper, 35 x 35 cm, 2018. The European travelers who made the grand tour in Italy in the nineteenth century, brought back home, in their drawings andmemories, a romantic, bucolic, partly false image of the country.

In the same way the map of a city can become a plot of memories or even the falsification of memories. There will be in that map some gaps, or forgotten parts, and parts that we remember as we would like them to have been and not for how they really were. The map can become a personal and intimate diary, where we record our experiences. That map can even become the abstract representation of the ideal life we would have liked to live, a melancholic outline of our regrets and broken dreams.
