“My visual research focuses on tradition regarded as legend. The desire is that of “freezing” social tales, which are often narrated, in order to create a positive or negative mimesis in their paranormal dimension. The focal point is not the effect that the story has on the present, but rather passing on ideal values, with the resulting creation

of characters, events and imaginary places within real
contexts and possible scenarios.”
