Project     The research of the traces of symbolization in our quotidian
             life, and their relations

Our project is to have a free exchange with the other artists with different culture, and the people in the region. I always try to explain my works, my pictures, let them know the extraordinary lines of development between cave art and calligraphy, and the life of every day ( attached a picture, presented in UNESCO: the universal declaration of human rights and cave art) . The feedback of others, always bring me the light for understanding this continuity of humans’ lives and cultures. For this trip, with my wife, we will study the possibility to make eventually a short documentary film about the interaction about the traces of cave art in everyday life of some of other artiste. The theoretical bases of my works are based over the Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault. We will try to organize the small meeting about the subject and let the conversation goes further. We also try to organize, the short period exhibition. If the organization let us, also we may organize the master class for having the demonstration of calligraphy and the origin of it.
