Architectural elements and furnishings are transformed into visionary creations enabling the emergence of underlying emotions.
Flavio Favelli (b. 1967, Firenze) a Tuscan who lives and works in Savigno (Bologna), loves to work with objects thrown away by others and which they wish to sell: he dismantles and re- assembles them, transforming them into art-efacts, thus revealing the poetic aspects present in everyday reality.
A well-established artist internationally, his work delves into the everyday and his own personal life. Favelli creates performance-actions in which he creates a physical and mental space modifying the perception of spectators, giving life to works that astonish the observer for the bold and witty combination of things that nobody would ever have imagined seeing together.
Thus at Ca’ Pesaro, used boxes and trays for fruit become the “bricks” of a new, incredible physical and emotive “construction”, revealing unexpected meanings, flows of existence, in objects apparently of no interest and no more than junk.
A comparison and meeting becomes inevitable between these works and others from the Sonnabend collection, such as the Boxes of Andy Warhol, icon on Pop art.
