The series In the box is composed by different panels of similar size. Each panel represents an area of body enlarged to a bigger scale. Each piece is made from a cast of the artist's body itself. The series inherits the title, and develops, from the two previous works. In the box 1 and 2, respectively depicting the eye of the father and the mother of the artist, enclosed in a wooden box which try to metaphorize the well known Ernst Gombrich's theory: the virgin eye doesn’t exist, our eye perception is always bound to a so-called "conceptual clothes." In this case, however, the panels, relative to the parts of the body, are not enclosed by a frame and the reason is that through the body and the perception that it can have, we have access to a knowledge less constrained with respect to visual perception. The "frames" that surround these panels are made of skin as to suggest that here, the limit of our perception is nothing more than the finiteness of the flesh as a shell of a mortal body.
