Gregorio Samsa


STATEMENT

Gregorio Samsa is an artistic duo that defines himself a single artist. He creates visual paths built like games of mirrors with a strong ambivalence sense using videos, sculptures, collages of fabrics, embroideries and furnishing elements. Starting from videos retrieved on web he alters the original document by inserting his artworks in it, through a careful manipulation work. The viewer is placed in front of an altered narration, which becomes the beginning of a new experience: the works come out of the video and become residual objects of a middle dimension, on the border between paradox and reality.
