Drinking straws, plastic christ.
23 x 15 x 19 cm

I made this work using a crucifix I had stolen at school during my last year of high school. The idea of making art with things I could find around myself was for me a beautiful revolution. The Tripod was showed in my first group show “Conoscere” @viafarini_organizzazione curated by #alessandragalletta. On the pedestal it looked like a weird spider. I was very excited to see some of my favorite artists at the opening, like #stefanoarienti who spent one minute in silence looking at my Christ on the straws. Than the great art critic #tommasotrini bought my work . I was 21 and I couldn’t dream better. .
