Zombie Town

When There’s no more room in hell the dead will walk the earth. Exhibition by Ale Formenti, opening Saturday 5th September 2009. Wollhausstr. 17 74072 Heilbronn, Germany.

Zombie Town is the city where I’m from. No matter about the name, I can tell you it’s in the north of Italy, but it could be anywhere in the world. People are dead here, there’s no light in the eyes: walk, buy, eat icecream and go to church on Sunday. Everything is normal, right? But who cares about normal things?

To be 20 kms far from one of the most important and influential city in the world doesn’t matter. Nobody cares. Everything is cool here: houses are beautiful, they have gardens in the backyard, kids always smile, they eat everyday and everybody’s happy.

Unfortunately they’re all dead and they don’t care about the world going on outside the town. I was born in this city and I have my headquarter here since 30 years. I don’t know anybody from this place, except for parents. I don’t think I care about getting in touch with someone from here.

Sometimes I feel like a zombie too, but the real ones: a creepy walking dead man looking for human flesh. But the zombies you can find in the movies are ten thousand ways more funnier than the ones that I see everyday here.
