Fish tank, 31 piranhas, terracotta sculpture. 100x100x50 cm

A self-portrait in a collective form, built of 31 piranhas and one sculpture, in a fish tank. In the common imaginary piranhas are ferocious and dangerous animals, while the work shows them as tiny innocuous little fishes. The terracotta sculpture represents a ski mask, a hidden face, that in the common imaginary hides violent intentions while it might be instead useful to protect oneself identity.
