LA VERA ENTITÀ, 2009
SCULTURA - Aluminium square tubes, wood, marble
cm 30 x 30 x 6
For Mark Aspinall (whose work is entitled 'La vera entità', 2009) lightness comes from a concentrated look on two visual fronts. The first is linked to the context (a squared section of bulkhead of organ pipes, raised on a pedestal and perforated at the top); the second is experienced in relation to four shapes (a circle, a rhombus, a triangle, a hexagon), all made of aluminum, which can freely float in the practiced fretwork. The opening also allows you to explore the inside of the structure, where it is possible to read different signs, as an unknown script. The wind moves the light and voiced silhouettes, that can swing and come close to each other.
