Clod 157: stay alive and hide you
This is a new work from the clod series. The clods are parts of the earth, which has been destroyed into many small clods. In this case the work is centred on the messages of staying alive, hiding. Will this be the real message? Is he making fun of us or giving us advice? Survive at all costs or live your own life by taking risks?
Fabiano Speziari was born in 1977. After graduating in design, he began working as an industrial technical designer and artist, experimenting with different materials and techniques, having a single guiding philosophy: to investigate the human soul, its relationship with nature and the environment that surrounds it. The human being who, naturally, is led to ask questions about that which surrounds them, but who often does not know how to respond, and eventually finds themselves with more questions than answers. From these thoughts have come various works over the years. Initially they were trees and natural forms done on canvas, or small, strange animals made of resin. He subsequently devoted himself for some years to land art and installations in nature. His current projects include developing a new botanical encyclopedia for future generations as well as dematerialising art by experimenting with cryptoart.
