How did this work come about?
When they talked to me about the Biennale of Ceramics in Contemporary Art I thought that instead of submitting drawings I wanted to do something that was almost handcrafted, like painting on ceramic. I was working with some images taken from Il Vangelo secondo Matteo by Pasolini and I thought of trying to work with the same images on another support. That’s how this work arose: three drawings taken from the film that rest on three types of different earths.

What’s the concept behind the work?
Certainly, it is not a conceptual work and if there is a thought it must be sought in the work itself. I remember that while chatting with Corrado Levi he talked to me about what he called “knowledge of the hands”. Fantastic! Especially for those who want to work with ceramic, it’s important to realise that there is more than just mental knowledge!
