Small Tenants

Siena marble and plexiglass, 2017

Written by Alex Sala

Antonella Gerbi. In her artistic search carves and infuses into her works the vibrant energy of presence. Though plexiglas she inserts in her work a new glare of reality, a breath of lightness that shows presence as well as absence. Her works seems to come out of the blue, out of existence, out of those simple question that have still no adequate answers. Inner sculptures, meta-sculptures that are almost only visible underneath a microscope lens, lonely liberation of matter with no horizon, no big story to tell, they multiply and prosper in everybody’s existential loneliness.

“Here there are our temporary existences, our microscopic problems, made just big enough to be visible, becoming almost obvious… Microscopic loneliness that swear for free identity. “
