PARETE VERTICALE, 2014
SCULPTURE - Aluminium plate, nylon wire, black plexiglass
cm 36 x 52 x 116
In relation to the theme, the work of ALESSANDRO ARMENTO ('Struttura Verticales 2014) is exemplary. The lightness of the metal and its inherent metaphorical expression are made as it were a structure in a scientifically studied layout. The center of gravity of each shape is the physical center of his repeated and rigorous balance. The lightness here is not only in the elegant simplicity but also in its presentation: open, crossable, it offers a multifaceted exploration of vision.
