Sebastiano Sofia believes in the autopoietic force of matter. The sculpture acts by itself, as long as the artist obsesses, dresses it, coexists with it. [...] "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world" is the cast of the floor of the artist's relaxation space, a pleasant place, which is presumed to be dedicated to one of the basic biological needs. That corner not touched by the battle of sculpture becomes the emblem of a relationship that is not consummated immediately.
