The Concept. The single personal cultural experience go to form a body of works based on the division between reality and unreality in contemporary society. The ambiguity of the vision split between bi-dimensional and tridimensional, annihilates the certainty of the vision. 

The viewer who looks at the single work is obliged to ask himself: what am I looking at? 
The uncertain perception of the artwork, becomes an uncertain perception of the reality. The sense of relativity of the vision leads to the sense of disorientation regarding the reality of the world.

The entire actual society seems to be split between two opposites, real and virtual, people sometimes “perform” a character, “perform” a situation beyond his own real life. They are pushed to perform on the “stage” of life and wear a mask. The mask becomes a human body and the two aspects are fused together so that you cannot recognize what is real , what is fake.

The realm of reality has multiple aspects; the access to a true reality becomes more and more difficult. 

Art can represent or can create all this: artists are invited to investigate the multiple aspects of reality; the very narrow edges between reality and unreality, the uncertainty of the vision, the disorientation given by the ambiguity of the perception.

Art as appearance, as ghost of reality, or as a real reproduction of reality?
