THE WEDGE, BOLOGNA, italy
The Wedge, a permanent sculpture created for the do ut do collection in Bologna, is meant as a representation of the metaphysics of space, illustrating the question: Is tangible space infinite or a finite dream?
Through the disjuncture between positive and negative spaces, The Wedge stands as an homage to the tradition of Italian sculpture, which challenges the weight and solidity of marble with the malleability of pure form. The question is presented via the dichotomy of two pieces of Arancio di Selva marble sourced from a single block from the world-famous Margraf quarries in Northern Italy.
The project was realized collaboratively with do ut do, Lev Libeskind, Daniel Libeskind, and their respective studios.
