The “frontal shield” is a colorful element present in nature in the anatomy of a number of species of birds. Set on the bird’s forehead, the “shield” is used to visually attract while at the same time functioning as a protection device. There is also a link between the frontal shield and levels of testosterone production by the males.
A shield, by its own definition, manifests itself in a relationship of constant and potentially infinite “frontality”, interpreted in the exhibition as a determining aspect of the work itself in a parallelism as direct as possible between the work and the beneficiary.
The project will amount to the exhibition of six works, set up in a way that permits their individual reading, avoiding thus an obvious visual relationship between them. This has the aim of turning the frontality in a specific factor and not a collateral element, subordinated to the display, but a precise medium, actively chosen by the artist.
