ARTWORK IN CONTEST

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.

AWARDS

SPECIAL MENTION OF THE JURY 2014

or the following reasons:

“Trama 13″ wires aluminum with lightness and sweetness, balancing the refined volatility with the weight of small tiles of clay, and knows how to weave it into a text that appears dense of memories: the reference to the tent almost assumes the value of a story and a recall, like a curtain that potentially opens on the house of being.
