No Country for Young Men 2018

Installation, consisted of 100 amphoras, designed precisely for the library Convitto Palmieri in Lecce became a „language“ by which I address to the community, underlining a necessity of a dialogue between heritage, tradition and identity through true action of breaking and destroying potteries served to preserve everything what soil gave us. Evil spirits are frightened away by noise, and this kind of ritual act is a symbol of new challenges and new life, leaving behind bad things, taking away sadness and misfortune.
The progress must come through vision and dialogue, otherwise the trail is erased along with roots and identity as well. And we all know that without it we are lost in the space.
