Come l'acqua come l'oro... / „Like a modern archaeologist...“ (2012)

Like a modern archaeologist this artist is investigating the man of the past in order to understand the man of today. She investigs amphoras, patellae, bowls, columns and she re - constructs them with appropriate materials: patellae of plexiglass, watercolours and light, elaborating them into installations that recall the Roman originals. The patella presented in lightened plexiglass, the Calix or the Kantharos in Jesmonite (an industrial material that can simulate marble as well as wood or metal) or the columns constructed with plastic bottles.

The contemporary facing the past in a reunion that does not express the distances but the continuity from man of the past to the man of future. From the protagonist of history and the protagonist of technology. An ideal leap that regains through art the space and the time that we thought lost forever.“
(Umberto Broccoli, Come l'acqua come l'oro..., Palombi Editori, 2012.)
