PICK OF THE WEEK #5

Scolpire il Tempo, 2010 – collection Nomas Foundation, Rome (IT)

Giorgio Andreotta Calò produced in 2010 a series of bronze sculptures made from deteriorated wooden mooring poles found in the Laguna of Venice. Through time, the salt water and the tide has transformed these poles into rough and fantastic looking conical shapes. These shapes are used for his new series of sculptures.
For the gallery Calò has created a special environment where these sculptures can be experienced in a still atmosphere, reminiscent of their place of origin.
