Still life

Still life is a sculpture for the table, a box and a food container. Picking up the central piece, naturally ergonomic, Still life turns into a box, while, closing it, it turns again into a sculpture. A dreamlike and, at the same time, an useful object, hovering between past and present, container and content.
It is inspired by the seventeenth century Flemish Still Lives, the table set paintings where life swarms, reminding us that food is substance and icon, nourishment and metaphor.
It is an ongoing series.
