“The light installations by Simone Bubbico tell about moments of profound melancholy dealt with irony and the lightness of a Chinese shadow. By projecting light onto apparently abstract elements, Bubbico manages to create ephemeral images of shadows on the wall, as he would be giving shape to a bunch of humanity’s existential problems. Incompleteness and fragility seem to be the themes addressed by this artist through the purest and simplest use of light and shadow, which we can also find in his drawings, where the contrast between black and white presents us characters lost in their own ambiguities”.
