An ex­hi­bi­tion of hearts and sculp­tures by Da­vide Pis­apia, bet­ter known in the art world as Al­ter Ego. This young Neapoli­tan, who was born in 1988, has, for the past three years, used an un­usual ma­te­rial, namely iron, to fash­ion his cre­ations. He col­lab­o­rates with mas­ter car­pen­ters to trans­form it, weld­ing and colour­ing it into art­works and draw­ings, like those on dis­play at the Mediter­ra­neo un­til March. “We heat, cut, melt, pol­ish and colour iron which is the cen­tral theme of our cre­ations – says the artist – How­ever, iron has a cold soul and is there­fore dif­fi­cult to mould ac­cord­ing to our will. Our job was sim­ply to un­der­stand it, en­hance it so it rep­re­sented our ideas giv­ing it the value it de­serves”. His works rep­re­sent all aspects of love, in­clud­ing love that spreads its flame to en­com­pass lovers in a tug of war, end­ing when some­one’s heart is fi­nally bro­ken. This ex­hi­bi­tion has an even more ro­man­tic mean­ing as Valen­tine’s Day ap­proaches. “De­scrib­ing the de­tails of the time spent in the work­shop is al­most im­pos­si­ble - choices, mis­takes, cre­ations, wor­ries and joy. Then, fi­nally the sculp­tures saw the light – says Pis­apia – It was a truly amaz­ing sight. It all be­gan with a sheet of crum­pled pa­per, and now it can all be found here”.
