Born in Terni, 1981. Lives and works in Rome. The research of Cristiano Carotti focuses on the aggregative power of symbols among communities. As stated in the Jungian theories, they are considered fundamental for the construction of a collective conscience. Stimulated by the works of Renè Guenon on the concept of a possible mistaken evolution of the human race, Carotti studied the mechanisms that progressively brought from an active process of acknowledgement to a passive one. The investigation is developed around the study of both secular and religious iconography and the transformations of symbols under a socio-political perspective, often completely emptied only to be charged with new, selfserving meanings. Through ceramic and installation, Carotti redesigns contemporary archetypes and fetishes, using a personal language between anthropology and post-internet aesthetics.
