"Memento Mori" comes from the need of Borondo to fix in a book what has been, in order to continue with what it will be: in this book the artist lets us discover himself in complete freedom and honesty, opening the doors of his archive and showing an unknown part of his work, which represents indeed the heart of all his artistic production: the research.

“Memento Mori” comes from the need of Borondo to fix in a book what has been, in order to continue with what it will be: in this book the artist lets us discover himself in complete freedom and honesty, opening the doors of his archive and showing an unknown part of his work, which represents indeed the heart of all his artistic production: the research.

Sketches, drafts, photographic references, all produced by the artist himself and collected during those last years. Photos taken all along his travels and on the roads he walked on, or by who walked by his side. All the volume tells us about Borondo’s creative process and artistic work, since the beginnings until 2014, also trough four essays.

A book that is connected to the street, and to what the street has represented for this artist: the freedom and the opportu- nity to base his life on art, and to show it to all of us. The street has no rules for Borondo, and if there were any, he found a way to break them. The streets has no limits, it’s never closed, it always exists and it always leads somewhere.

The book is now available from Yardpress’ website and then make sure to continue reading for more preview images from “Memento Mori”.
