Artist: Iacopo Cecchi
These works are a practice that started in 2017, arises from the need to bring with me the memory of a place,a fragment of its beauty.
The drawing depicts the rocks fracture, void and internal tensions over millions of years.
Using the frottage technique I make a drawing of a chosen place and at the same time I put my body in relation with the space and the landscape.
It a cognitive experience.
They are traced on old maps of places far and different from my path. The also lead nowhere as the tracks have lost contact with reality, with the rock itself. Now they form another reality, they bring with them another beauty made of signs, numbers, colors an cracks.
The drawing is also what remains, a document of a performance and memory.
