Memento Mori comes from the need of Borondo to fix in a book what has been, in order to continue with what it will be: in this book the artist lets us discover himself in complete freedom and honesty, opening the doors of his archive and showing an unknown part of his work, which represents indeed the heart of all his artistic production: the research. Sketches, drafts, photographic references, all produced by the artist himself and collected during those last years. Photos taken all along his travels and on the roads he walked on, or by who walked by his side. All the volume tells us about Borondo’s creative process and artistic work, since the beginnings until 2014, also trough four essays by Edoardo Sassi, Simone Pallotta, Carmen Main and James Buxton.
A book that is connected to the street, and to what the street has represented for this artist: the freedom and the opportunity to base his life on art, and to show it to all of us. The edition is produced and coedited by Chiara Caprasecca and Chiara Pietropaoli.
Memento Mori nasce dall’esigenza di Borondo di imprimere in un volume tutto quello che è stato, per continuare con quello che sarà, con la certezza che il passato, la vita, verrà conservato. In questo libro l’artista si svela in libertà e con onestà, aprendo le porte del suo archivio, mostrando una parte inedita del suo lavoro, che ne costituisce il fulcro vitale: la ricerca. Sketches, bozzetti, reference fotografiche prodotte dall’artista e raccolte in questi anni. Foto scattate da Borondo durante i suoi viaggi per le strade percorse e da chi era al suo fianco. 284 pagine che raccontano il processo creativo di Borondo, la sua produzione artistica e l’artista, dagli inizi fino al 2014, attraverso i testi di Edoardo Sassi, Simone Pallotta, Carmen Maín e James Buxton. Un libro legato alla strada, a quello che ha rappresentato per Borondo: la libertà e la possibilità di attestare e conservare la sua esistenza attraverso l’arte. Il volume è prodotto e coeditado da Chiara Caprasecca e Chiara Pietropaoli

“The gestures and poses of his figures, in their stillness and in their perfect and ancient anatomy have a taste of Mannerism that Borondo takes apart with his courageous and very modern use of colour. The man is the fulcrum of his thinking, the main character of an eternal present, which is total interior and where the holy means nothing compared to the human depths. The man is the artist in a game of reflexes that projects the same Borondo reflects on the man, but the man is himself.”
Simone Pallotta-Rome 2015 (IT)
