About the work
Provenance
Fabrizio Plessi
Italian, b. 1940
Follow

Drawn to water for its primordial and mystical associations, Fabrizio Plessi has used it as the central inspiration for his installations, films, performances, and massive sculptures since 1968. An early champion of electronic techniques, the famed multidisciplinary artist is interested in deconstructing the boundaries between the arts and sciences. Plessi was catapulted to international fame following his 1988 sculpture Roma, an installation that combined stone ruins and embedded video screens. Since the 1990s, he has taught extensively and created sets for the theater and opera. His sculptures tend toward the large-scale and the spectacular; they include a monstrous electronic waterfall rendered in a spectrum containing over 16 million colors and a nearly 150-foot simulation of an ocean wave. He has extensively exhibited at international art fairs and in 2011 created the Venice Pavilion at the Venice Biennial in partnership with Louis Vuitton.
