ROOM 1


MENTRE I DISEGNI MISURANO

WHILE DRAWINGS MEASURE


18 pencil drawings on paper are measurable details in 1:1 scale of the letters of the word INFINITO imagined enlarged to the infinite.

Set at regular intervals along the walls, the drawings put their measurement into natural relation with those of the walls.


LA LUCE FOCALIZZA

THE LIGHT FOCUSES


A projector on the ground projects and focuses not far away in space the word “PARTICOLARE” (DETAIL), invisible until a person, for example, stands where the writing is focalised, which then appears and illumina- tes the person as a visible “DETAIL”.


I COLORI E LE PIETRE SONO PESO VIVO

COLOURS AND STONES ARE LIVING WEIGHT


The two works are living weight inasmuch as they tend to strain towards di erent directions and not only in the direction of gravity, meaning of verticality.


ROOM 2



DISSOLVENZA (1970)

DISSOLUTION


The work relates to the passage of time.

Fade-out is concretised by means of an iron block weighing around 200 kilos which through oxidation is destined to disappear.

The iron dimension of the work, though it is fading-out, permits the desire for a prolonged existence.


SENZA TITOLO (1967)

UNTITLED


A wooden frame structure holds taut a transparent plastic sheet which a vice grasps and draws towards the centre, to which it remains suspended as in a void, indicating that energy, in itself invisible, is manifested by the effect of its action.
