Federico De Leonardis, Bastone, 1996, brick engraving, Peccioli, via Bastioni
Bastone by Federico De Leonardis depicts a walking stick carved into the bricks. The stick is the typical support for elderly walkers, the scratch in the wall seems to eternalize this indispensable companion, which in our imagination recreates the multiple walks along the same street. This furrow encloses the act of walking, crystallizes it forever. It immobilizes the action of walking but at the same time repeats it endlessly.
