The title refers to the farthest star ever seen, discovered by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope: Icarus (MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1)
How far do we look?
Icarus is a nonlinear narrative, the desire to see what is distant, the attempt to reveal a form in the process of pulverizing reality.
Icarus is a set of landscape images wether coming from digital sources, or found books or belonging to my analog archive. These images are photographed several times, fragmented, reassembled, excavated, exhausted, altered by darkroom printing processes, mixed as if they all came from the same source. And then again drawn or painted, letting other signs to emerge, traces that open the way to possible and unknown worlds, new territories on which to proceed by trial, without accepting a preconceived, absolute and defined perceptive reality.
Icarus is a journey on the threshold, between the real and its representation, a place where the meaning of images is questioned and the trajectories cross and overlap in a vertical stratification, in a suspended and indefinite time.
It's the imaginative process of an infinite space where the gaze is lost, unaware of where we can arrive by contemplating the uncertain, the unthinkable that is constantly before our eyes.
