Triennale di Milano

The trunk represents utopia’s weight and its alleged perfection, whereas its peeling embodies the deconstruction of such order.

A 35 cm diameter poplar trunk is peeled with a lathe to obtain a single and continuos ribbon of veneer, around 2 mm in thickness and 290 cm in length. This sheet becomes a white flag, symbolising an act of surrender and moment of truce for mankind, now facing its failures and the possible revolution of nature. At the same time, it can also be perceived as a white space, the springboard for new possible scenarios.
