Autobiografica

2009

Case, cicada exuviae, fabric, pins, 13x30x17 cm, 2009

"Giulia Berraʼs works evoke her own emotions and trepidations; especially “Autobiografica”,a little case filled with lines of balm- cricketsʼ exuviae: the remains of the moulting symbolize the metamorphosis, the change suffered during the natural evolution of personality, a process that involves strain and pain and leaves its scars behind." (Arianna Beretta)

 

 

Cofanetto, exuviae di cicala, tessuto, spilli, 13 x 30 x 17 cm, 2009

Si tratta di un cofanetto al cui interno sono spillate delle exuviae di cicala: i resti della muta simboleggiano la metamorfosi, il cambiamento psicofisico, che presuppone fatica e dolore, e lascia dietro di sé delle tracce.
