I was encouraged in this
work by recent debates at different levels in my country.
For one year I have been collecting fingerprints of the
people I met. I selected and enlarged thirty of them, without
concerning of age, sex and colour of the skin.
The more I went on collecting them, the more I was fascinated
by this "sign" of recognition, left by a part
of our body when pressed.
The collection wants to represent a wall sometimes built
by human beings during their evolution, but which can be
crossed thanks to the transparence of the material with
whom it is created. A wall of identity then, which
be an obstacle to relationships, but can become the place
in which every identity realizes itself, if it finds a space
around for movement, for the presence of the "other"
admiring it, the whole as an harmony of symbols,
meaning by this word the witness of a relationship.
And as each symbol sends to other to build a divided unity,
so each fingerprint sends to another to become visible,
to be a sign of itself and then to exist.... and guarantee
