Fragments is a project that attempts to piece together the tempestuous relationship’s history with my family. My father is a horse races gambler and lost everything. An old car at the edge of the sidewalk is his only shelter from the elements of life. A while ago, the  world has  crumbled into a thousand fragments, which alienated me from reality, allowing me to survive. I wanted to forget my childhood, but I became also aware that without it I can’t build a future. With this project I have been able to renovate my past, to see and to understand my denials, but also to find myself. Something has changed: the appearance of a new life has brought together our many worlds, although my mother is still blurry, distant, enclosed in a hermetic silence. My story has a happy ending even though it is still pervaded by the hope of a better future.”
