Carlo Pasini reproduces objects and animals to scale 1:1 (modeling of the polyurethane foam) and transforms them by covering them with thumbtacks, stones, pins and glasses. Be the animals, both objects lose their authenticity, typical of nature and wear a mask as humans usually do, often hiding their true self from others. This paradox, showcased in a spectacular way by the artist leads us to reflect on human beings and their intellectual honesty, often sacrificed at the expense of loyalty between people, with other living beings and with the environment in general.
