A print is immutable. What has passed on that matter leaves its mark permanently bringing with it all its history, its roots, its meaning, its emotion. This also happens in the human being, as a container of a distant history, of memory and of natural forces that mark its existence. Immutabili is a human body portrayed as in a shroud. The front view is marked by a symbolism linked to water flows and the life of plants.

Veronica Azzinari (Milano 1986)
From the beginning of her artistic research she always had the need to "remove" the material, to scratch, this is the reason why since 2012 she had approached the techniques of engraving and especially those of chalcography.
She brings this type of practice back to the desire to bring to light, to relive history and memory, to delve deeply into the history of man, which is why in her work a taste and a symbolic language emerges that finds its roots in beginnings with both an “archaeological” and an intimate type attitude.
In addition to the marks left by man, in an attempt to represent the real and dream world, her attention is focused above all on the signs present in the environment, on the rocks in the plants ....
She thinks that within the textures and modules, which we can find on any form of life on our planet, reside the maps and languages that have always built existence.
