"To dare is to momentarily lose the BALANCE, not to dare is to lose yourself"
I noticed Roberta's works in a very crowded fair in Bologna, set up in the Tiziana Tommei stand. The fair in 2017 was held in the bus depot near the Bologna station in a surreal atmosphere: all the entrance in line with the Swiss, Albanians, Romanians, Bosnians, Germans ... who were waiting for their bus for long distance night trips. The theme was a sentence by Soren Kierkegaard: "to dare is to momentarily lose the BALANCE, not to dare is to lose yourself". Roberta Busato's works talks about this, and two years after our meeting and working agreement I can say that DARE is the word that most portrays Roberta's spirit. His technique made of raw earth and straw and his heads rigorously with his eyes closed, have me and continue to fascinate me.
