“This drawing is taken from a hyper-realist large-scale photograph: the portrait of the artist’s deceased paternal grandmother’s hand. But it affects us all as children, the only condition, the latter, shared by the whole human race. The title takes us to the heart of the work that began as a reflection on Italy, a dedication to the modern conditions of the Bel Paese. In the rosary there is also an insert in lace from Burano (Venice). It represents Italian craftsmanship all over the world. A tribute and a metaphor, positive and full of hope, for the quality craftsmanship typical of Italy”.
Valter Adam Casotto (Padua, Italy, 1980). His work deals mainly with the conceptual exploration of the facets and transformations of human and individual identity over time, through hyper-realistic sculptural and video works. It invites viewers to consider and reflect on the importance of their own identity over time, also with regard to memory and the possibility of overcoming the boundaries conventionally connected to it.
