Francesca Ferreri operates from everyday objects, following a criterion of chromatic integration and imitation, creating sculptures that aim to redefine their boundaries and identities. To implement this process the artist uses techniques of restoration, tested over the years, and which have structured its unique approach to sculpture. Moving from the conceptual and procedural aspects of the restoration technique, the artist recovers the idea of gap, that this technique is intended to fill, elevating it into the subject of her work. The gap reclaimed is no longer just the part that allows the human eye to flow freely on the surface, but it literally overflows and starting from being a simple integration bridge, it becomes the main subject. This vision is deduced by the artist from the parallel process of brain functioning during the call-of-memories. Memories, in fact, are never stored in full, but always rebuilt in the mind to every call, resulting in the loss or addition of data. The device that the artist active, by dealing with sculpture or drawing (considered as the original element of his artistic practice) is thus a form of 'restoration' which, through a system of rigid procedural coordinates suggests the very action of rebuilding an imaginary object to aspire.
