This series of chains was born out of the need to overcome my own powerlessness. It was a reaction to the political and cultural stagnation I perceived around me.
"Ho visto un angelo nel marmo e ho scolpito fino a liberarlo.“
I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I freed him
These words inspired me to trace the living in the wood. I took a branch.
Guided by the wood, I formed one chain link after the other, one springing from the other.
In a lengthy, meditative work, movement came into the rigid branch.
As ornaments, embracing the body, or as sculptures, the chains are symbols for both, restriction and liberation.
