Many of Casanova’s installations are unique for the fact that they aren’t “installed” anywhere, but are built and left to stand amongst the landscape which provided the materials for the piece in the first place. In a handful of cases he’s chosen to go deep into the backwoods before starting a project, exploring for days before choosing a place to begin his work. What better way to cover lots of ground with a load of tools and get somewhere really remote than by motorcycle?
Riding helps enable Casanova to turn his inspiration to reality and to escape into parts of the world that are serene and untouched. Check out the video below to see what Casanova creates and hear more about his process, aesthetic and the role motorcycles play in his art.
