The series I dedicated to “Moi Aussi…” project is a tribute to the “Book of the Hunt”, a manuscript kept at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, and ordered by Gaston Phébus, Count of Foix, around 1387. My interest in this text is due to a personal research, which has always linked me to medieval art and symbolism, so on this particular occasion I wanted to deepen the strange theme of hunting in medieval art. Trying to rework the imagery proposed by Phébus, I tried to understand and re-propose the symbologies and imaginaries dating back to the time of this particular manuscript, stumbling upon the very contradiction that determines the object of art. In fact, my choice inadvertently fell on a hunting manual, which although full of miniatures is still thought to be a manual, rather than on one of the many paintings depicting hunting scenes. Entering, I think, in communion with what is one of the main aims of the project, to show the possibilities of art, even in the most common objects, where we normally see nothing but technical functions.
