Cut-up is a literary technique born with dadaism, widely used since the 1960s by William Borroughs and Brion Gysin and, later, by various contemporary artists such as David Bowie and Thom Yorke.

Cut-up consists in physically cutting a written text, leaving intact words or entire sentences; by mixing the various fragments, the author makes up a new text, which always maintains a logical sense – although sometimes incomprehensible.

“As in the literary cut-up technique, we started from the finished work – that is, the original plates made by CARDO with Marianna Costi, in which different portions of matter and juxtaposed textures coexist.”

We dissected the slabs into portions that incorporated only small details of the finished work, and then generated modules with a selection of these fragments.

Those who install the material are unconsciously writing a new story, generated by the random composition of the modules.”

Cut-up is a collection of full-body porcelain stoneware suitable for indoor and outdoor use on both floors and walls.
