about

Paloma’s work is motivated by the observation of daily life as an attempt to record the intuitive knowledge surfacing from simple everyday events. It develops parallel lines that connect and intertwine making an intimate universe full of oneselves. “I must have a body; it’s the first moral obligation. In the first place I must have a body because there is darkness within me” And it is from this very darkness that exists in us, in the body that inhabits us and that we inhabit ourselves, that the artist weaves meanings, sometimes inside, sometimes outside, at times folding in, at times folding out.

Se For Preciso, Fuja

Paloma Mecozzi engages with the observation of daily life aiming to record the intuitive knowledge surfacing from the silence of simple everyday events. She develops parallel languages that connect and intertwine making an intimate universe full of oneselves. “I must have a body; it’s a moral necessity, a ‘requirement’. And in the first place I must have a body because an obscure object lives in me” (Gilles Deleuze, The Fold: Leibniz and  the Baroque). It is from this very obscurity existing within us - in the body that inhabits us and that we inhabit in turn - that the artist weaves meanings looking inside and outside, at times folding in, at times folding out.
