Francesco Fillini

My studio is a place where to become a stranger to oneself.

What I do in one sentence: I create territories, like animals. Inhospitable precipitates of the present time.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: I would need one, do you have something for me?

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: An artwork belonging more to its time than to its author.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): I am interested in origins and in degenerations, in genesis and in apocalypse, not in maturity. Some authors about genesis: Wade Guyton, Alva Noto, Martin Barré, Blinky Palermo, Beth Letain. Some authors about apocalypse: Günther Förg, Demna Gvasalia, Will Boone, Matias Faldbakken, Sterling Ruby.

I am afraid of Horror movies, is it ok? (Because horror is the new black).

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I don’t believe in history, tradition and memory, so even monuments, tombs and epigraphs.
