Ti ricordo nel futuro
This work lays in the wish to fix the moment of birth, especially the fetal position when coming to light. The sculpture was realised in Bronze to give this instant a solid and eternal form.The sprue rods are part of the sculpture as the ombelical cord is the link of the child with the mother. The sculpture merges figurative and symbolic elements through the unity of its expressive language.
Счастливый пельмень (The happy pel’men’)
In Russia is very common to prepare for the whole family big quantities of “pel’men” filled with mince meat (similar to the italian tortellini). It is used to make one filled with very strong ingredients as onion and pepper, called “the happy pel’men”. The person who has the luck to find it has to eat it all because no happiness arrives without sweat. The sculpture represents an old and dried up pel’men that could bring luck yet none ever ate it.
