    Souvenirs Pastorini
    Pastorini has always been fascinated with the nostalgics of yesterday's events, and this is verified by the materials she has been choosing as time went by. In this exhibition, the superposition of sewed fabrics is unified by means of the handkerchiefs, an element that repeats itself in every work. While travelling through Europe, I gathered 1960s handkerchiefs with patterns of maps, cities or monuments. These are the souvenirs that tourists buy as a document or record of the places they have visited. Thus, the artist creates the Souvenirs Pastorini with the fragments of those fabrics she went on finding as she travelled. With an ironic attitude, and also nostalgic, she reveals the habit of gathering things to prevent oblivion; things that, eventually, end up getting as older (probably more) than the ephemeral intensity of a simple recollection.
