Gilda Mautone






ITALIAN/FRENCH

Her work is linked to the emotional sphere of the human being who lives and survives in a society that constantly confronts him with his own weaknesses and fears. The most negative aspects of it predominate, such as dissociation, resentment, nostalgia, regret. These sensations make the individual monsterroidal, deformed in his expressions almost prey to an obsession, or to a dazed and distorted dream.The road almost always, or phytomorphic elements, are the background, wanting to be a way to alleviate or accentuate these aspects.
She use different media, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installations to have a greater ease of expression and to give a further aesthetic strength to the represented object and its single meaning. The photos are mainly taken from the street, a diary of signs, objects and places found by chance but which tell of a past experience, abandoned in solitary street corners. As well as the sculptures obtained from crocheting, embroidery, consisting of scraps of fabric found in flea markets or made from old lived-in clothes and then thrown away.  Everything has its own meaning, a previous life, a past to tell
