The status of entanglement reflects an actual and impossible separation, an intertwinement. It’s a physical phenomenon, discovered by quantum physics, where two or more subatomic particles, also known as “entities”, mutually condition themselves, but at the same time communicate among themselves.
Consequently, physical systems are strongly connected, they actually resonate with each other.
Subatomic particles are mutually correlated, so reflecting the Big Bang theory, according to which everything was connected at the beginning, but everything is still connected and inseparable now.
Humanity consists of subatomic particles, hence the “human” entanglement is a state of nature, our day-to-day behavior and human relationships actually originate from that connection.
I created a structured set of “umbilical cords”, an intertwinement of emulsified papers: these same papers were then chemically “painted” by means of chemical procedures in the darkroom.
Finally “painted” cords have been precisely embedded and sewn into each other, leading to tapestry works where painting, photography, sculpture and weaving are contained altogether.

Entanglement significa non-separabilità, intreccio, è un fenomeno scoperto dalla fisica quantistica e che coinvolge due o più particelle subatomiche o “entità”, che si condizionano e comunicano a distanza.
Ciò significa che non esistono sistemi isolati, ogni cosa risuona con il tutto.
Le particelle sono correlate, così com’era tutto collegato al momento del big bang e ciò significa che tutto si sta ancora toccando, tutto è connesso e inseparabile.
L’umanità è composta da particelle subatomiche, quindi l’entanglement umano è naturale e questo legame con il tutto, scaturisce la nostra quotidianità e le nostre relazioni interpersonali.
Ho creato dei “cordoni ombelicali” intrecciando delle carte emulsionate che ho poi “dipinto” in camera oscura attraverso procedimenti chimici.
Successivamente li ho incastrati, come tasselli perfettamente combacianti, e cuciti tra loro realizzando degli arazzi, dando vita ad opere che racchiudessero la pittura, la fotografia, la scultura e la tessitura.
