"L'avventura"

Personal exhibition

La Grande Invasione, Ivrea IT,  2018

 

 

An investigation on the relation among the two evasive activities of reading and sleeping,

“L’avventura” reveals the physical passivity hidden in the act of reading.

 

While the reader travels and explores his feelings through the adventures of the books caracthers, time goes by and his real life experiences are put on the side.

Inspired by Italo Calvino’s “Adventure of a reader”, these serie of seven drawings tells the story of Amedeo, a reader which falls asleep while reading his book, going from living the adventures contained in between the pages to navigating into the sweet fantasies

offered by his dreams without ever leaving the tree under which he is sitting.
