ARTWORK IN CONTEST

LA BUONORA DELLE COSE, 2022

SCULPTURE - Aluminium powder in resinous binder, iron base
cm 35 x 22 x 7

“The aluminium blisters are made with aluminium powder in a resinous binder (cold casting), poured into silicone rubber molds. Aluminium is endless ... even in the ways in which it can be used”. Through this technique Taras Halaburda with La buon’ora delle cose offers a playful and ironic note to the auspicious custom, at times decidedly excessive (Buonanotte! Buona Cena!. .. Good everything! Good life!). A concept of infinity that refers to the repetition of actions, words, sometimes necessary and sometimes without concrete substance.
