The only records of our ancestors are in their fossils
Exploiting the correspondences between science and art, the project explores the dynamic interaction between creation, preservation and destruction, and the struggling between primitivism and civilization. Embracing a series of combined practices, from collage to physical interventions on the photographic surface, the whole work has to be consider like the transfer of a physical experiment into the picture context with the aim of rediscovering the flaw that characterized human species as and revealing the primitive nature we all belong to. Suggesting implications for the past, the present and the future of a mankind involved in the accomplishment of eternal endurance, the series eludes to the petrified, preserved, and permanent impression of the fossils as a challenge to human temporal registers.
