Human flaws and deceptive perfection, as a paradox built both sides of the same question: the need of the man in his everyday life to dress his hardships with a beauty that he believes true and it is as ambiguous as taste itself. Which are the limits of bad taste? What is seen in the history of art as bad taste is, for many, the sublime, a supreme form of pleasure incarnated in the decoration. The paradoxical statement takes support on the supremacy of the bi-dimensional, the marked disparity between everyday and beauty, between kitsch and formal austerity. Visual elements working for divergence of senses, expressing lack and desire, deprivation and mirage, have to become a way through to think and feel our present.
