Photo 4 - After

Giuseppe Appella

“...the installation, it will now be clear, comprises a number of different but complementary elements which open to the gaze, while the suspended column, in its peremptory physicality, never ceases for a moment to dominate our attention as the paradigm of categories of expression. At the same time, the column never colonises the space it belongs to, shedding any excess in the lightness of the water’s transparent membrane. The water, in its turn, then challenges the object with the induced circularity of an emblematic value endemic to a thought-system like that of the language of art.”
