Selce Marcantonio / 2019

Selce is a shaped mirror with golden serigraphy decorations that, like Tool n.1 – the flint paper weight - re-interprets the first crafted stones.

It is a tribute to the know-how of mankind: our ability to learn, absorbing the techniques used by our peers, and the will to do it for a lifetime, not only for our own progress, but for that of our entire species.

At the same time it is a warning, an invitation to remember our most ancient identity and compare it to our current one.

A mirror for the body but also for the soul.

“I liked the idea of a mirror that you could look into and glimpse your origins”.

Marcantonio
