The exhibition at Spazju Kreattiv deals with some eternal and spiritual concepts, such as the ritual purification of fire and the ashes as the ultimate witnesses of something that is lost forever, at least in its physical dimension. The artist decided to exhibit rotten materials: close to the ashes. In fact, the spectator can find old objects, remains of the construction industry and objects consumed by men, nature and time.

The core of the project resides precisely in the dichotomy between the Eternal and Universal passage of time and the Human consumption of matter and earth, calculated in our earth time. Through this confrontation the artist is willing to suggest to us the ephemerality of today’s consumption of soil and goods, suggesting a new spiritual (and not necessarily religious) life behind things.
