The small things of day to day life
Tasso's wood and plexiglass, 2016
Written by Antonella Gerbi
The work, of 2016, made of Tasso wood and plexiglass, is part of my research to which belong several works of the period and that investigate the representation of the self, here the place of our intimate manifestations. The oneself represented therefore and anyway through sculpture. I wish now consciously give back to sculpture that identity role of human sensations that today more than before represent the challenges for each of us. It is clear that all my research wants to be a writing in fragments, without pretensions of globality, a postmodern deconstruction: fragments of one's time that survive everyday life. I don't want to create a unified vision, rather to create a solid, rarefied poem together, subtle, a polyemic narrative in which identity coexist.
The work presents itself as a synthesis of dwelling composed of several elements. A plexiglass fragment inserted into an architectural element. The mixture between these is the center, the center of the whole, the point where the latent energy manifests itself and is released. Between one element is born and the form dies, as if it were an elusive thought made solid.
