Calendars

Created with pen or felt-tip pen, on sheets or other objects and supports – including my own skin – engraved on marble, copper or steel, the Calendars take the form of a long sequence of numbers and letters representing the initials of dates from the day I undertake the performative exercise of writing and mentally concentrating on the time to come.

The Calendars are a form of meditation on time and its real existence, an attempt to give body to its intangible nature, to make it concrete, or at least to chase it, giving it a name and a date. With this artistic act I encourage you to notice Time, not to be afraid of it, not to cage it, not to underestimate it, to become its friend. Time is a gentleman who always reveals the truth.
