Embroidery as Art

Maurizio Anzeri works with sewing, embroidery and old photographs to explore the essence of signs in their physical manifestation. He takes inspiration from his own personal experience and observation of how, in other cultures, bodies themselves are treated as living graphic symbols. he then uses sewing and embroidery in a further attempt to re-signify, and mark the space with a man-made sign, a trace. He is interested in people's stories and histories, and the relation between intimacy and the outer world.
