Catalogue Note

"There was a time when buildings and monuments had a value as representations of the center of an ideal and ordered city, standing on solid foundations. Today, sculptures are better thought of as nuclei or crystals, eyes or focuses, and they stand in relationship to frontiers and voyages, to the imagination and the perception of complexity."
Arnaldo Pomodoro
