Be-longing V – Cain and Abel at the harvest festival…

2016/17 | 190 cm x 110 cm, Kilim from wool/cotton, copper wire

In this series ‘Be-longing’ the core material are worn carpets woven over time by people from all over the world.
Global migrations, uprooting and the search for a new life are phenomena that characterizes our times. These changes move in the soul of people ancient fears; thus we observe an ever greater indifference and closure before conflicts and migrations.
The work is called Cain and Abel at the harvest festival and speaks of the inextinguishable instinct of man to prevail over his brother even when there can be wealth for everyone. This instinct is based on the closure in one’s own certainties and on the inability to understand the other, underlying cause of the phenomena of indifference rooted in the depth of our collective being. The collective in which we move our lives proposes homologation and in – difference so that those who bring diversity become, become a pretext of conflict, and this is an old plot … like that of the carpet chosen for the work.
In the work Cain and Abel at the harvest festival, instead of celebrating together the gifts of the earth, they conflict by pulling the fabric that unites them, generating a tear in the carpet that even the steel wire does not seem to be able to hold together.
