I’ll be showing my new work, Sciogliere e ritrovare, at the London Canal Museum for the Museums at Night event on Saturday 18th May. The installation is an exploration of climate change using images and film-footage shot in and around London, incorporating audio of two pieces by the feminist poet Frances Presley, with fragments of the poems embedded in shapes of ice.
The video Città Ideale will also be shown on the night, as well as Icicle, a collaboration with paper engineer John O’Leary.
The Ice Wells at the London Canal Museum come alive on the night of 18th May with film installation, painting, poetry, ice sculpture and photography. Arts on Ice is a night at the museum exploring the depths of the ice wells and ice trade which operated from the building during the 19th Century. Full details of the event can be found here.
A range of artists from Islington and further afield exhibit ICY works of art at the London Canal Museum– ice sculpture, film installation, painting, poetry and photography – the museum is transformed into an Ice Palace to the arts.

Art Below is a London based public art enterprise founded in 2006 by Ben Moore. The organization works with a wide range of international artists and has an important position within the movement of contemporary art in public space.
Art Below uses billboard space in underground stations to display artworks in London and overseas – I’ll be participating in Art of March. A poster featuring a detail of my work, Il colore è di chi lo sa canzonare, will be on display from 11 March at St Pauls Station (Central Line Platform 1 Westbound) for a period of two weeks. The full work is shown below. Prints will also shortly be available from Art Below’s online print shop.
L’opera d’arte è una soluzione con una possibilità di migliorare qualcosa…
La questione è riconoscere il punto in cui l’opera non si tocca più.
earth, water, fire…
apri le porte
con l’immaginazione del trasformare
cenere diventa oro
I attended Brian Docherty’s very enjoyable launch party last Saturday at Hornsey Library where he read from his new book, Woke Up This Morning – great live jazz music from Sandy Kindness too.
Brian, whose book is published by Smokestack Books, asked me for permission to use my picture, L’acqua dialoga coi sassi, on the cover.
