MI CASA ES TU CASA is a bronze sculpture of a woman with flowers and houses on her head. The title means “my home is your home” and it’s a typical courtesy expression in Mexico. The artist wants to give a tribute to her adoptive country and remind to herself that the body is our real home, and that she can be well everywhere.
This is a very dear theme to Francesca since she is far away from home and sometimes she need to remember that she is not lost. This piece is part of a special collection Francesca Dalla Benetta started in 2018, called Metáforas del Ser (metaphors of the being), and it is a reflection about how many costumes we wear in front of people, the society, family and so on. We have roles that are different for each person we meet in life, so we try to adapt and respond to that particular role. Sometime we align, sometimes we react. That’s how we build our personality.
This piece has a black and green patina with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color.
The black patina is made from the green one, after the burning process, so magical and mystical.
This piece is a unique piece.
