In the Turn to wood series, the concept of energy is manifested in a motion of eternal return. The material used by voice to work; cardboard, this material that originates from its deep memory, from the earth to a tree until it becomes paper. The work is carried out through a high level of technicality, where by means of meticulous design and sculptural reworking, the cardboard returns to show itself in the nobility of wood.
Astolfo’s work on this recycled material shows a projection of the internal process of rediscovering one's immutable essence, what arises from the observation of these carved cardboard blocks is like an unfathomable memory. Their presence, even if formally renewed, continues to show the viewer the distance, as if they were isolated objects now abandoned and left to themselves.
