"48.5 rad is the trademark marking the doll which is framed on a particular limb. The skin shows crumbled and focuses on a crumbling being. It almost seems that in a world where the brand is everything, the rebels will be destroyed themselves as a product to become work.
And this work of Laura Ragazzi, silent work, full of white, a soft white and soft, makes visible what lies beneath the skin, albeit with a strong action of cracking, breaking, and what you see is the very essence of being. As if there were another skin, a second skin, his own, and not that of a serial production.
48.5 rad is a work seemingly ominous dwelling, one sees the force of his nature, of what lies beneath the skin, marked and manufactured by a company immersed in the economic system that takes away the individuality of the soul and being." (Terry May)
