project info

The idea of Americana Breakfast table set (New York 1990-2012) comes from the traumatic and destabilizing event of September 11th. A traumatic event always carries in itself two opposite feelings: loss and gain. Both of them deal with memory: the loss of circumstances happening within the traumatic event together with the fear that it could all happen again. We have to conquer that fear, but how? Going back, gathering the lost data and starting again from that point, and were where we at that time? New York is a symbol for America and worldwide. A place that can give you anything, the reason why fifteen years ago I started searching its vital points through images that have become the basic elements of this project. I felt the need to picture the same things over and over again as if something was just in front of me but I could not see it. The frenzied life, dazzling, twenty four hours a day, its neighborhoods born out of strong immigrations, its skyscrapers reflecting and breaking up the city itself. Twin Towers and Ground Zero, arrival and starting point. And so regaining memory of something that apparently is not visible anymore. A backward walk, like an inner emigration, to bring out some thoughts capable of showing us all the points of view, to transform our lives, a little, to balance the pain and took us to awareness. But Americana Breakfast table set is not only an exhibition, is the installation of a
table prepared for a classic american breakfast, which represents the most important meal of the day, using those place mat that in Italy we call “american” printed with the pictures on exposition. I want to represent the start of a new day, the waking up, the moment when everything come back to mind.
