Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi presented his new installation titled Simbiosi at Arte Sella, Trentino. The aim of this site-specific work is to live with the places and landscape of the art park.
Simbiosi, a sculpture that finds its definition in the union of architecture and nature, also represents a turning point for the artist’s path who, for the first time, combined the transparency of the wire mesh, the symbol of Absent Matter, with the materiality of local stones.
Edoardo Tresoldi is famous for playing with the transparency of mesh and with industrial materials to transcend the time-space dimension. In Simbiosi one can see this concept but also the need of man’s primordial to merge with the surrounding nature, to interpret it and represent it according to the codes most similar to him.
Tresoldi’s work has a deep connection with Arte Sella which, seriously damaged by a storm last year, has undergone several changes from the point of view of the territory.
Simbiosi stands on a hill that did not exist before the atmospheric event and binds to it thanks to deliberately created connections between the architectural elements and nature.
A positive dialogue and the consciousness that nature, with the passing of time, will take possession of the work giving rise to a path that will change the installation as we know it now.
