Work is prostitution

The​ ​first​ ​collection​ ​has​ ​been​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​a​ ​very​ ​contemporary​ ​and​ ​provocative​ ​aphorism​ ​of the​ ​symbolist​ ​poet​ ​Charles​ ​Baudelaire.​ ​Different​ ​and​ ​alien​ ​to​ ​the​ ​positivist​ ​bourgeois​ ​culture which​ ​was​ ​dominant​ ​in​ ​Paris​ ​during​ ​the​ ​19th​ ​Century,​ ​Baudelaire​ ​embodied​ ​the​ ​myth​ ​of​ ​the rebel​ ​and​ ​skint​ ​intellectual,​ ​nightlife​ ​and​ ​excesses​ ​lover.​ ​Considered​ ​by​ ​many​ ​the​ ​first modern​ ​artist,​ ​Baudelaire​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to​ ​see​ ​in​ ​the​ ​metropolis,​ ​in​ ​which​ ​everything​ ​is​ ​fleeting and​ ​ephemeral,​ ​not​ ​just​ ​the​ ​decadence​ ​of​ ​moral​ ​values​ ​but​ ​also​ ​a​ ​mysterious​ ​hidden​ ​beauty. The​ ​problem​ ​the​ ​poet​ ​presented​ ​to​ ​his​ ​generation​ ​is​ ​also​ ​the​ ​inspiration​ ​of​ ​the​ ​brand Dégradé​ ​Conspiracy.​ ​The​ ​dilemma​ ​between​ ​material​ ​and​ ​ideal.​ ​In​ ​such​ ​a​ ​commercialized and​ ​technicalized​ ​society,​ ​is​ ​poetry​ ​still​ ​possible?

Work​ ​is​ ​prostitution​ ​perfectly​ ​synthesizes​ ​​ ​the​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​react​ ​to​ ​the​ ​ever-deeping​ ​crisis​ ​of values​ ​of​ ​the​ ​modern​ ​society,​ ​where​ ​the​ ​advent​ ​of​ ​new​ ​technologies​ ​combined​ ​to​ ​the consumerism​ ​has​ ​led​ ​very​ ​young​ ​people​ ​to​ ​become​ ​alienated​ ​in​ ​a​ ​virtual​ ​reality​ ​where​ ​they find​ ​easier​ ​to​ ​express​ ​themselves.​ ​Nowadays​ ​it​ ​is​ ​difficult​ ​to​ ​enter​ ​the​ ​world​ ​of​ ​work​ ​without being​ ​devoured.​ ​So,​ ​on​ ​one​ ​side​ ​there​ ​are​ ​some​ ​who​ ​prefer​ ​fart​ ​about​ ​and​ ​who​ ​are supported​ ​by​ ​parents​ ​refusing​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​of​ ​struggling​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​and​ ​earn​ ​money​ ​to​ ​live.​ ​On the​ ​other​ ​hand,​ ​there​ ​are​ ​also​ ​those​ ​who​ ​are​ ​exploited​ ​because​ ​they​ ​aspire​ ​to​ ​find​ ​a​ ​job​ ​they like.​ ​Work​ ​is​ ​prostitution​ ​is​ ​the​ ​cry​ ​of​ ​those​ ​who​ ​want​ ​to​ ​wake​ ​up​ ​from​ ​slumber​ ​and​ ​finally​ ​be able​ ​to​ ​express​ ​themselves​ ​and​ ​hope​ ​for​ ​a​ ​better​ ​future.

CAGE
Colorful​ ​jagged​ ​shapes,​ ​made​ ​of​ ​sharp​ ​edges,​ ​try​ ​to​ ​shut​ ​in​ ​the​ ​order​ ​of​ ​pure​ ​white​ ​like​ ​a chest​ ​cage​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​contain​ ​a​ ​heart.​ ​The​ ​world​ ​often​ ​doesn’t​ ​fit​ ​us​ ​and​ ​try​ ​to​ ​block​ ​us.

DECO’
Between​ ​deconstruction​ ​and​ ​decorativism,​ ​squared​ ​color​ ​blocks​ ​contrast​ ​with​ ​white​ ​trying​ ​to reject​ ​it​ ​with​ ​force​ ​and​ ​make​ ​a​ ​stand​ ​to​ ​its​ ​advance.

DIAMOND
Like​ ​the​ ​poisons​ ​that​ ​pollute​ ​our​ ​society,​ ​color​ ​attacks​ ​white​ ​making​ ​shapes​ ​like​ ​thunderbolts that​ ​go​ ​through​ ​the​ ​sky​ ​or​ ​thorns.

THORNS
A​ ​stylized​ ​diamond​ ​refers​ ​to​ ​the​ ​hardness​ ​of​ ​our​ ​reality​ ​that​ ​reflects​ ​any​ ​impolite​ ​defect​ ​or lack​ ​and​ ​exalts​ ​the​ ​empty​ ​beauty​ ​of​ ​perfection.
