Marsel Aion Lesko is an Albanian artist living in Rome. He presents an installation that provides for the possibility of movement of its rotor; it is a sort of technological stele, to which the author assigns a symbolic and dualistic interpretation. In fact, in the presentation notes, the artist explains that the artefact alludes to the two souls, the male and the female ones, united in the same universal destiny. On the other hand, the recovery of aluminum waste material, coming from the mechanical and industrial processing of the metal, is suggestive. It is an interesting recovery not only from an aesthetic point of view, that is, for the formal constructions that the artist has elaborated, but also because these constructions do not lose the peculiarities of constructive details and in part the reference to their functional identity. In this sense, as a whole, the work overcomes the mechanistic dimension on which it seems to be founded, opening itself to the fascination of a regeneration of the same technological process in which aluminum appears, in particular, the main interpreter.
