ARTWORK IN CONTEST

VENUSTAS, 2014

SCULPTURE - Reflective aluminium sheet, methacrylate
cm 152 x 48 x 1

The work by Laura Cristinzio ('Venustas', 2014) draws inspiration from the several meanings of beauty. It is a conceptual installation in aluminum resembling a flag that can be displayed outdoors or indoors. A shiny object on which images of everyday life can reverberate like movie shots. Beauty is seen as transparency and brilliancy, pennant of internal symbols exposed to the wind of personal and collective life, in a vision that binds the eternal and the present moment in a synthesis that becomes metaphorical.
