By using constant motion of his kinetic installations and materials of questionable durability, such as hockey sticks distributing paint, melted birthday candles, chewing gum, straw dream-catchers and flimsy clothes racks, Georgetti encourages us to think about what we see as a plain image, a simple and innocent surface, and the feeling this same object would incite if it were a living object, complete with personality and feelings. Extending from the idea of play as well as mystic animism, his paintings and installations in Arena ‘celebrate the loss of trust that occurs when things fall apart’.
