Nature Mortta By Sara Ricciardi
There are objects that suggest practices – formal exercises to learn how to generate. The ancient art of Ikebana was the driving force of the project. Samurai, the valiant Japanese warriors, practice in the “road” of composition (ikebana) with natural elements to find within them the force they needed to overcome the fear of battle and death that could take them at any moment. Some processes need to be activated in order to find the most intimate balance, the equilibrium of natural forces to balance the spirit. Allow yourself to live time and select nature sample to make them sacred. Attach value, take a careful choice and communicate the tension of being. This practice generated the “still life” project, a range of supports made in different materials like brass, copper, marble and plaster that encourage people to experiment with their creative process and give birth to natural fetishes produced with dead branches and leaves. Solemn beauty posing for the last time.
