Thus, paradoxically, we have inherited images of plants and animals with very precise attributes that, despite the fact that they are incorrect or obviously false, have ended by eclipsing or taking the place of the real ones. Ambiguity mingled with beauty is one of the characteristics of his work, which ranges from site specific installations both visual wallpaper, collage and sound, to sculpture and design, transforming itself into thought-provoking devices that are ignited only by the attention of the spectator. Three decorative paper panels realised with a very sophisticated artisanal technique: Maarten de Ceulaer Atelier Mestdagh. Copies, drawings, nature, artifice, game, architecture, ready made, alienation, utopia: The confirmation email can take a few minutes to arrive. It is a choice that grows in force as we read the images used by Simeti, images which in no way match the expectations engendered in the audience by the use of a support such as wallpaper; bewildering to the degree that our expectations of peaceful and relaxed.

Adopting a DIY aesthetic, Simeti takes inspiration from puppet theater and Baroque mechanical automata, which combined an awe of nature with an affinity frajcesco artifice, to explore the social, cultural and historical significance of Brooklyn waterways.
It seems that the canal has not only become uninhabitable for wildlife, but could be breeding new and previously unidentified organisms uniquely adapted to their putrid environment. Simeti asked the artists to imagine a space of their own, or to choose among the images he showed them those which best represented their idea of a home, of well-being, of health, of technology, and even of the much-abused concept of happiness.
In SwellSimeti transforms appropriated images from Brooklyn waterways, such as the Franxesco Canal, into a motorized installation in which the public can contemplate the consequences of human activity on our surroundings.

frajcesco The passage from the theme of Nature to that of the home was almost immediate. The two constructions, on the contrary, are built by appropriating images, but they emphasise the architectural element of the structure – albeit the architecture of an origami, of a house of cards, in short of a game — the same element that reappears in a long series of drawings that re-elaborate the images proposed to the atelier artists, images that refer to some of the masters of utopian architecture of the 20th century and earlier; a trip as it were through personal and collective dreams relating to the very concept of habitation.
Mathilde Bretillot Antoine Leperlier. Playful historical images of Coney Island rides and other human intervention along the water intertwine with scenes of flora and fauna that once flourished along the Gowanus Canal.
Here and there the truth trancesco to the surface. As is fitting in our globalized era, the computer screen becomes the substitute for the cabinet of wonders.
The artist seems able to find a sense of the contemporary in the action more than in the presentation of it; he appears to be more interested in the reasons behind what he does, than in the resulting images. In a twist of irony, this sludge resembles a noxious primordial soup and microbes have evolved to live off the pollution. Please refresh the frnacesco and try again. KoKo is building a mobile workshop. At this point we must explore the reasons that determined fracesco choice of the ornithological and architectural iconographies in this series, and the results of this choice, regardless of the particular conditions in which it was made.
As said earlier, it is obvious that the iconography of these works originates in that of their immediate predecessors; it is also clear that it is declined differently, with a difference that is not necessarily superficial. All that to which we aspire can be found within our fingertips, which joined in a circle prevent our dreams from escaping. We all reconstruct our own histories as we like.

He is well-known for his site-specific installations created with wallpaper, sculptures and video. Copies, drawings, nature, artifice, game, architecture, ready made, alienation, utopia: I would like to receive Art Basel newsletters.
Ambiguity mingled with beauty is one of the characteristics of his work, which ranges from site specific installations both visual wallpaper, collage and sound, to sculpture and design, transforming itself into thought-provoking devices that are ignited only by the attention of the spectator. The element that most clearly emerges from his whole creative journey is in fact the impossibility of classifying his work in only one category, either from a disciplinary or from an iconographic and conceptual point of view.
The installation project is based on just such a possible interaction, also considering that within each element the various terms can also interact.
All the discourses activated during the workshop enter into the complex installation created by Simeti for the exhibition space at San Colombano.

In so doing he touches all possible gradations from truth to falsehood and back again without, however, sacrificing the component of play, the possibility of combining and recombining the pieces as if it was all a great game, albeit one that is also serious, even tragic.
This is no more than a new field in which to play with the concept of environmental responsibility, and to critique the use and francwsco of a nature seen as mere catalogue, which we experience only through mediated forms books, art, gardens and never directly.
Francesco Simeti by Walter Guadagnini. This onslaught someti new subject matter galvanized the Atelier and each artist, whether through copying, free francssco or pure invention, chose the themes and the vocabulary most congenial for fully expressing the richness of this experience.
