FACES IN THE GROUND

Micol Grazioli – 2013

At first sight it looks like a trace or a hole dug by an animal. We get close and it’s like a passage, the emptiness before receiving. As we are pushed to observe we discover the negative imprint of the most receptive part of our body: a mask sinks in the ground the more we look at it, listening to it and smelling it from the inside. To cast the faces Micol Grazioli sinks its face in the ground, researching communication with nature. Researching this contact she leans toward the ground as a form of respect, repeating itself everytime visitors come close to observe the faces.
