Naughty Messy Nature (portraits)

N.M.N. ist a partecipatory project. The co-authors of the works are not humans, but infinitely tiny microorganisms: fungi of mould. The individuals portrayed in the N.M.N. series reject any kind of traditional definition in terms of gender, race or species. Identity is viewed as the result of a collective and interactive process, and as a transitory concept: every image captures a special and unrepeatable moment of the figure’s constant transformation. The N.M.N. portraits are not meant as a work about decomposition and vanishing, but as a celebration of the wonderful creative disorder generated by biological and natural processes, regardless of human efforts to put harmony, symmetry and order in the major part of their material or mental constructions.
