About La Maison Brûle
La Maison Brûle is a sort of intimate diary, an introspective journey that keeps together the last years of my life, 2011-2015. I don’t feel necessary to add any word to this work, just leave the images speaking for itself.Just feel to add some lines of the italian poet Simone Cattaneo:
I learned the infamous term
and the value of fasting
I turned the sweat in bloom
and the smoke into gasoline,
I dug my flesh
like it was a sail
and I threw sand over the crying
I believed in the worth, in the silence,
the smooth question of hunger.
