Classical sculptures of balanced shapes expressing the idea of a harmonic beauty but somehow detached are juxtaposed to heels or clinging to the poles of the pole dancing, consciously seeking the eye of the camera. We are offered a fast forward trip from the past till today to discover that the representation of the body and gender is a cultural construction and that today’s identity is something in becoming, more complex than just an opposition between masculine and feminine. Luca Asta’s body of work leaves us with the impression that culturally charged pairs (masculine and feminine, dirt and clean, sacred and profane) have exploded and their fragments are put together again but in a stage of fluid transition. Like suspended particles they are all circulating in the same space waiting for new connections to be drawn.
