The sculptures in the series Capitolo Finale (2016) take the form of soft columns which look like the entrance to a world pervaded by a dystopian irony. They are monuments erected to celebrate human hands, now reduced to mere maintenance tools, cleaning the screens we use to visually experience our mediated reality. The title alludes to the hypothetical final episode of an animated series whose characters are engaged in attempts to overcome feelings of digital discontent, the angst and frustration caused by the separation of the physical and mental dimensions.
The sculptures are covered with images collected following the hashtag #sunsetporn: romantic sunsets morphed into grotesque, hyper-saturated landscapes that blur the dividing line between sentimentality and aesthetic appreciation. The rhizome-like elements that protrude from the columns are reminiscent of a character from a popular Japanese anime, suggesting a traumatic awareness of the mysterious, perhaps monstrous, origins of humankind.
