idoutore è un personaggio inventato che ha deciso di continuare a raccontare bugie a scanso di diventare un bambino vero. Lo fa disegnando.

idoutore is an invented character that chose to keep on telling lies not to become a real kid. Drawing is its own way to do it.

Quello che immediatamente colpisce delle opere di Idoutore è quel palpabile carattere ‘’fantastico’’, laddove per fantastico, parafrasando lo studioso Roger Caillois, si intende qualcosa che produce emozione e insieme turbamento ispirando dubbi attraverso la potenza della sua origine indefinita. Tali sono le creature di queste opere, ibride, immobili e silenziose. La morfologia delle creature di Idoutore è interamente composta di elementi interni al mondo umano, non sono mostri scaturiti da una fervida immaginazione ma bensì geografie di una realtà sapientemente capovolta. Le bocche sono cucite da fili di lana, gli arti legnosi e arborei, i paesaggi costellati di oggetti facilmente riconoscibili. Tutto è perfettamente quotidiano eppure nulla lo è. Le opere di Idoutore raccontano un mondo noto ma in cui segni e significanti perdono le loro connessioni creando cortocircuiti di grande impatto emotivo.

What immediately strikes about Idoutore’s works is that palpable trait of “fantastic”, where fantastic, using the words of the scholar Roger Caillois, refers to something that produces emotions and, at the same time, restlessness generating doubts through the power of its undefined origin. The creatures of these works are just like this: hybrid, still and silent. The morphology of Idoutore’s creatures is entirely made of elements belonging to the human world; they aren’t monsters generated by a fervid imagination. On the contrary, they represent a reality wisely upturned. Mouths are sewn with wool threads, limbs are woody and arboreal and landscapes are studded with items that can easily be recognized. Everything is perfectly familiar; yet, nothing really is so. Idoutore’s works tell the story of a known world but one where signs and signifiers lose their connections creating short circuits with a strong emotional effect.
