LOVE | Paradisi Artificiali

Davide Valrosso
Summer 2020

Subtle and invisible energies move three bodies on the scene, embodying the different features of a love that, in the sign of the feminine, generates its own trace. Anatomical presences and fragmentations that feed on relationships between bodies and objects, from which eros/love overflows and takes shape. Dominated and bound in the sign of red – as the colour of love and passion, but also of violence, danger and blood – they generate visionary images that crumble into sensual dynamics and desire. Geometric lines and shapes mix, revealing hallucinogenic images on the edge of dreams, capable of creating monsters or sacred figures, similarities, vectors of urgency or channels of force and substance.

The Artificial Paradises are signs, engraved and tattooed in space, tangible mirrors of a hidden eros, prosthesis of a love that is unable to give itself but that in the end inevitably overwhelms us.
