Oh mio cagnetto
10.5 x 17 cm
Oh my dog, it is the first book of writings by Diego Marcon, conceived as a work of art. It is a collection of 81 small poems that revolve around the lost and grieving figure of a puppy. The work was written between 2018 and 2020 and from 2021 it is part of RETROFUTURO, a collection ongoing of the museum MACRO of Rome.
The collection intentionally plays on the ambiguity of its nature, like a book, it’s distributed in a conventional way and like an art object, it’s exposed in a traditional context.
