TRAMA 13, 2013
SCULPTURE - Aluminium mesh, metal stick, clay
cm 80 x 138 x 4
Singular and striking, in the simplicity of allusive reference, is the work of Marcella Belletti. It is a curtain made entirely of aluminum braided wire. The view of the details is a proof of the extreme fineness of the workmanship. The ductility of the metal, used in thin and shining wires, is combined with the formal elegance, giving the surface lightness and preciousness.
