Pietro Roccasalva’s tableaux vivants or situazione d’opera, orchestrating sculptures, installations, digital works, drawings, films and performances, are invariably oriented towards painting, which alone has the power to suspend time, according to the author. In a constant play of works within works, a work is created from the internal structure of the previous one, like an everlasting imitation. It thus reveals an infinite interior world with various iconological obsessions borrowed from art or cinema.
