“The everyday is the place where repetition and creativity confront each other: ‘humble and sordid’ and simultaneously the time and the place where the human either fulfills itself or fails.”

Through the writings of Maurice Blanchot and Henri Lefebvre, Federico Del Vecchio explored and questioned the ‘everyday’. The everyday is the site of a fundamental ambiguity: it is both where we become alienated and where we can realize our creativity. Blanchot closely follows Lefebvre, who argues that the everyday is the place ‘where repetition and creativity confront each other: “humble and sordid”’ and ‘simultaneously the time and the place where the human either fulfills itself or fails’. His research focuses exactly on this moment where the object is no longer part of the everyday, but in the process of becoming an art object, and tries to explore what factors contribute to this potential of transition.
