X-Ray Work: LABYRINTH-OS Installation
The idea of this project began when, one day, I put my personal X-Rays on the floor.
In my personal story I lived different circumstances where I had to take X-Rays:
two car accidents, problem with lungs, operations to teeth, nose, knees, Achille's tendon....
I realized that by laying them the floor they were covering a large surface.
The idea that they could be artistic material, giving them a second life, caught my mind and it didn't let me go.
This thought gave me also a 'cathartic feeling' in relation to my personal story.
I started to collect X-Rays also from other people asking them to tell me their stories.
In 2014 I created the Labyrinth-Os installation with my assistant Antonio Romano.
Labyrinth-Os is a structure composed by 33 panels, each one measuring 200 cm x 80 cm.
Hundreds of X-Rays have been used for the construction that lasted two months.
Labyrinth-Os passed the first selection at Arte Laguna Prize www.artelagunaprize.com in Venice, Italy in 2014.
