Artist's Statement: Mattia Cantoni (EL)

I am EL, an artist exploring the boundaries between reality and imagination, blending movement with metaphor. My journey is an exploration into the unknown, where choreography and conceptual art come together to provoke deep thoughts.

My art is a dialogue with the audience, delving into human emotions and experiences. Each work is a bridge between myself and the viewer, inviting discovery and challenging perceptions.

My creations explore creative potential, merging darkness and light, truth and dream, in a unique sensory dialogue. As an explorer of flesh and spirit, I aim to transcend conventional boundaries and reflect the complexity of our existence.

3. Materia Prima:

"Materia Prima" reflects on the role of art and the artist in expressing the essence of the universe and human experience. It's a project contemplating the poetic perception and artistic representation of insignificant details revealing profound universal truths.
