In bond I chose to recover what was lost in translation:

in Italian “vincolo” and in English “restriction”.

Each piece of the necklace is slightly movable.

The connection points simultaneously restricting and releases all the movement around them.

The work reflects by my personal believe that free means to have freedom of choice.

In life, the choices are many, as the multiplicity of images that appear and disappear over the necklace.

The bond, as i see it, is what helps us to define our choices.

Being aware of the relevant connections we want to keep and care we can break with what limits us.
