Temporary installation located in a temporary sand island. This project is a tribute to the popular customs of small fishing villages on the Adriatic coast in the norh of Italy. Every summer it is a tradition for some people who live nearby and who have the means to reach the island (only by water) to build huts using objects that the sea brings during the winter and their own construction materials. These huts are built by families and groups of friends to spend the summer on the island for a few days a week, to protect themselves from the sun and create moments of conviviality. They start building them during the spring, and at the end of the summer they remove all the unnatural materials, in case the sea decides to take back the island.
Collaboratin with locals, I built an installation using a selection of materials I found on the island and paints worked on differents fabrics and pvc. What interested me in my practice is to find a connection with the context where I found my self, to work with its elements and history, and return them in another guise. In this case the paintings and the natural elements from the sea are removed from their context and unite with the natural elements of the island, they have a new role and time.
