Tridimentional Embroidery on Fabric.
Aesthetics of Terror: danger is ubiquitous, ever-present.
Interior decorating fabrics embroidered with: actions of threat and danger, photographic portraits from the criminal record of Cesare Lombroso and phrases or works taken from police notices and other public announcements by the authorities. The rich interior decorating fabrics, with flowers and plants, correspond to the private sphere of bourgeois living, and to the Gated Communities, increasingly present in urban landscapes in most of the metropolis of the world. Thes embroideries appear as the ghostly image of violence, always stalking in the shadows, a perpetual threat.
The project centers on the opacity of our perception of the world and on how our ability to recognize ourselves and others has weakened over the centuries. It is also about the continuous sense of danger, be it real or fictitious, in our lives. At police training schools around the world, Cesare Lombroso (1835–1909) continues to be studied. He came up with a pseudo-scientific, racist catalogue of criminal typologies based on the facial makeup of criminals and the color of their skin.
