This large-scale painting of a walking wolf (Lupus Viator) was the first in the series. It was shown for “Fuori Uso” (1993), an annual contemporary art exhibition that takes place in Pescara (Italy).⠀

Curated by Achille Bonito Oliva⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. ⠀
Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.⠀

The second installation of Marcha de Elefantes took place at the Sistema Museo/ Rocca Maggiore di Perugia (Assisi, Italy). At this occasion the ephemeral painting of this monumental elephant march, was realized on a palisade, that surrounded the castle.⠀

Curator: Giulietta Speranza⠀
Performance dance: Gisella Zanmatti⠀
⠀⠀
The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀

The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀
