PIN FACE:  Statement             Artwork

Title: Pin Face
Type: Photo project
Technique: Photo, pin, zip, a chain, white color, balt cap
Year: 2010

In my work I have extensively developed the concept of my characters face and body, through the need to modify the female form with the aim of gradualing cancelling the personality. A transformation in shape, what I mean by this is, decontextualized forms are inserted within the composition of my works. With Pin Face I focused on the portrait, on the face and in turn the antithesis of the face, as the key representation of a person and their character, in contrast to depersonalization and decontextualization.
The pin is an iconographic element of Punk and punk for me is a rejection against control.
In order to escape control, mass approval, a defined identity that no longer belongs to us is necessary to journey through a process of cancellation, the erasure of approval becomes white; however, to subvert this identity, there is a further step of disfigurement and mutation to be made, a step that adds elements that go to pierce and graft, in a sort of urban and modern tribality, a self-sacrifice updated to the contemporary: they actually go to subtract and distance the original identity.
