Two works will be displayed inside the stand: one that is large and highly very visible, another that is small and barely perceptible.
The first. Towards the area’s far end, laid on the ground and up against a wall, an iron ladder composed of three jointed elements lies together with its base. The trellis structure recalls equipment usually seen at construction sites. Its first part is anchored on two heavy concrete blocks placed one on top of the other, which rests on two wooden beams. The two concrete blocks have three steps whose treading surface has been obtained from slabs of marble scrap.
The second. A small bas-relief carved into two fragments of marble slab scrap glued together and recessed in the wall depicts the silhouette of Mount Tambura (in the Apuan Alps, Carrara). The meticulous workmanship reveals a marble quarry inside.
The large sculpture is modifiable, mobile, and parked, as if awaiting some utilization in our busy process of progress.
The bas-relief, therefore the mountain, is immovable, stable. The mountain contains the marble of which it itself is made.
The use of marble in the work laid on the ground is merely marginal and functional, whereas the marble embedded in the wall regains its role as material for sculpture.
