An immortal soul lives in everything.
Is it possible to get lost among the reflections of metal, to carefully explore its surface, in search of a different narrative from the one immediately perceptible through sight alone? Each object carries with it the traces of its history and with it the memories of whoever has imagined, shaped and preserved it. Despite the fading of the craftsman's footprints, the most intimate nature does not die out with the passage of time: it is a magical moment when one can try to capture the overlap between human will and primordial essence.
Oxidation spreads on surfaces that were once shiny, similar to a chisel work, the rivets become tired, while the metallic foil ripples to remind us of its earthly origin, as if they were once mountain ridges.
The prerogative of the Anima collection is to give voice to the inanimate, to tell the story of the object through the object itself. Four different metal surfaces, four different primordial elements shaped and interpreted by man, transformed by the passage of time. Because it’s when one shows the superficial imperfections, the inner physical processes that it is possible to reveal the true soul of things, to reconnect with them in a way that really matters.
Where the forms gradually degrade and leave room for complex physical processes of change, the points where human gesture has intercepted the natural structure, an intimate connection re-emerges between us and the surrounding world; among those things that we often evaluate as alien interventions and not as part of a larger process.
