Mottled sausages, icy landscapes with worms that seem to have died trying to make it over hurdles, portals to impossible lands: welcome to the accidental world of Anne Brugni.
METAMORPHOSIS is a period piece of a work in progress, a cross section of ideas that eliminates a good quantity of works already made, and ignores the future. It is not a “best of”. The book itself is made in the same manner of the works displayed within: using instinct, not too much revision (but revision nonetheless) and just enough material to give a glimpse of a narrative without becoming redundant or conclusive. The primary question that the work makes us pose is: WHAT?
Sure the material is profane: simply paper & clay (if boiled down to the bare essentials). But the treatment, the textures and compositions give us clues to a mania, a research, an exploration that is flabbergasting.
