sonerie
Lo scorrere del tempo, i segni che lascia, il ripetersi dei cicli. Il restauro e l’edificazione, l’immobilità e il transito.

Lo stesso oggetto riutilizzato e camuffato da diverse persone, ne tradisce l’indole, la cultura e le origini.
La presentazione (Dottoressa, Avvocato, Commercialista...), l’accoglienza e il diniego, l’agiatezza e la povertà.

I campanelli sono pieni di impronte digitali, si ricordano polpastrelli rosei, scuri, delicati e rozzi - si ricordano anche gli occhi che scorrono in su e in giù cercando con fretta il pulsante giusto.
“Chi e?” “Sono io”.

I campanelli vivono soli, in coppie, altri in comunità più o meno grandi, esposti alla vista ma gelosamente custoditi. Sono di matrice uguale ma con identità diverse, identità di ottone lucido o bakelite nera.

Numi tutelari, icone condominiali - si manifestano con pezze e capezzoli, targhette e cerotti, nomi e cognomi, scritte e colori.
Quando termina la loro funzione e vanno abbandonati, si devolvono alla quiescenza, perdono il loro scopo e rivelano la loro essenza-assenza estetica.

Eccolo - il simbolo dell”Io sono qui”, (la bandierina sulla balena): solo e abbandonato, impolverato, decaduto - si offre in tutto il suo languore al primo che passa.

The passing of time, the signs it leaves, the repetition of cycles, restoration and construction, immobility and transit.

The same object, re-used and camouflaged by different people, betrays their nature, culture and origin.
The presentation ( doctor, solicitor, accountant…) the welcome and the refusal, wealth and poverty.

Door bells are covered in fingerprints, they remember digital pulp pink and dark, delicate and rough - they also remember eyes going up and down hastily looking for the right button “Who is it?” “It’s me “.

Door bells live alone, in couples, others in communities more or less large, visible but treasured. They are of unit matrix but with diverse identity, an identity of shiny brass or black bakelite.

Tutelary deities, condominium icons, they manifest themselves with cloths and nipples, name plates and plasters, names and surnames, writing and colours.

When their function is over and they are abandoned, they devolve to quiescence, losing their aim and revealing their essence: aesthetic absence.

Here it is - the symbol of “ I am here “ (the flag on the whale): alone and abandoned, dusty and in decline it offers itself in all its languor, to the first person passing.
