  • Catalogue Essay

    "The wall sculpture is an extemporary action on an everyday object like media images. Everyday object like the shoes and the bicycle. (Like simple words when you try to learn a new language.) The definitive form of the black form on the wall was not predicted and its fragile relation with the upsidedown image is the research of an incompatible co-existence. The title of the work is in relation to the Piraha tribe and the actual incompatibility between their language and ours." — Christian Frosi, 2006
