"Vandalism and iconoclasm are paradoxical ways to find new meanings in artworks. I grew up in Italy, surrounded by innumerable architectures, sculptures and paintings – none of which was able to mirror actual social problems and urgent moral dilemmas.

 

It is important for me to demolish my artistic tradition in order to find a relationship between my past and my present, as the process of destruction can reveal hidden identities, connections with aspects of the soul that can only become visible by a laceration of the epidermis of individuality."
