DREAM CIRCUS PROJECT

2011-ongoing
dreams, relational art

Dream Circus Project is an itinerant relational art project born in 2011 which aims to investigate the visual imagery of night dreams, creating dialogue, meeting and contact between its visitors.

The project aims to translate the dream world into a graphic sign, to make it a traveling circus of dreams based on meeting and exchange, from city to city and acting as a real relational device.

Dream Circus looks like an installation made up of dozens of small drawings on paper. The public is invited to tell in writing a dream or a nightmare that has particularly affected them.

For each dream collected, Daniele creates one or more drawings. In exchange for their dream, people receive the drawing generated by another person's dream, chosen from those available on display, with the sole criterion of following instinct and suggestion in choosing the image. As dreams are chosen, the installation changes, giving way to new images.

SENZA TESTA

2022
books

Senza Testa. Breve storia della decapitazione in rime e disegni (Headless. A brief history of beheading in rhymes and drawings) deals with the death penalty by beheading, one of the most symbolic of capital punishments, through the stories of 25 historical executed. Each of these characters is portrayed from the rhymes of Lucio Villani and the duotone drawings by Daniele Catalli. By superimposing the red filter attached to the book, with a very quick gesture the head disappears and the protagonist is beheaded, as quickly as at the time the sentence was carried out.
