Lego Beach
( a serious play) ©2015
Just like the abandoned constructions in children’s bedrooms waiting for a new brick, a new
gesture before being demolished again, the pieces in this scenery are waiting for a gesture to
make them come alive once again with a new identity. Lego beach is an investigation on the
coastal territory between Abruzzo and Molise, which were once a single region within the Italian Constitution but were divided in 1963. The visual composition and decomposition mechanism of the scenery between winter and summer is surreal, almost astonishing, so much so that the area looks like a long banlieu along the SS16 and the Adriatic sea. That is how, far from everyday life in the cities, each summer that goes by leaves its scars on this area between the land and the sea – empty buildings, playgrounds with no kids, lonesome kiosks, and promenades. Lego beach is a serious game, a game for grownups, who must be careful about what they build and what they destroy. In one of the favourite places on the outskirts of Italy object of a mass summer migration, the act of visual reconstruction is a necessary conservation act. And the only act possible.
