My first land art work realized in a farm not so far from my studio, with my hand (and with the help of a tractor 50hp). Work that it was first and foremost a performance lasting several days.
It was inspired by the camps of nomadic shepherds, that in my country are disappearing or are being transformed. A little as Polyphemus, who was the last of a long line of ancient giants (and shepherds too).
Not only for this reference the fire was so big.
The fire shaped roots of trees, staring or removing clay from them, changing their curves, coloring it with a complex scale of greys. Result still remains, farmer loves it, a gigantic natural brazier.
