The entire gallery will be transformed in an absurd carousel where the viewer will see his image lost and then trans gured through several acid etched mirrors decorated with sculptural elements rea- lized in ceramic by the artist.

In the centre of the main room, a big white rotating carousel will be the tool with which the con- sciousness can be lost in a uncontrollable vortex, a game of re ections and twisted visions. In the second room, a series of busts in shiny ceramic will represent fantastic characters transmutated by the crazy carousel of fairytales suggestions.

The entire exhibition is indeed focused on the idea of the bodyand-identity trans guration, per- formed by the mirroring sculptures, in order to take up the viewer’s image to give it back not only modi ed, but distorted with surreal and fantastic shapes.
