PRESENTED BY TABLEAU
OCTOBER 2019
“L’ILLUSION DES SOSIES” REFERS TO A PSYCHIATRIC DISORDER IN, WHICH A PERSON, COMMONLY DIAGNOSED WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA, HOLDS A DELUSION THAT A LOVED ONE HAS BEEN REPLACED BY AN IDENTICAL IMPOSTOR.
[READ MORE] STYROFOAM PACKAGING PERFECTLY REPLICATE THE SHAPES AND FORMS OF THE OBJECTS THEY ENCASE, BECOMING INDUSTRIAL IMPRINTS OF OUR WAYS OF LIVING - CONCRETE IS THE ULTIMATE MANIFESTATION OF HUMAN IMPACT ON OUR PLANET. IN RONCO’S WORK, IT IS CRACKED, FRAGILE AND EMBRACED BY PLANTS. USING DISCARDED PACKAGING AS MOLDS TO CAST THEM IN CONCRETE, RONCO HAS CREATED NEW SHAPES WHICH HOLDS MEMORIES OF THEIR PAST LIFE. THE TWO OBJECTS ARE INDEED NOT THE SAME ANYMORE, BUT SIMILAR AND LINKED BY FORMS, TEXTURES AND IMPRESSIONS.
