The present lot was produced as part of the 'Stone Fossil' collection produced exclusively for Ammann Gallery, Cologne.
The collective Studio Nucleo, directed by Piergiorgio Robino, incorporates a form of material time-travel within its design agenda. Playing on the notion of solidifying time-frames into three-dimensional space, the group’s work engages a wide range of materials from stones and wood to crystals and resin suggestive of different eras and levels of usage. With a strong sense of dialogue between many reused objects in relation to concepts such as fragility, perception and perishability, they have succeeded in suspending their work in functional time capsules: We believe that through making a past of the future, we can create a curiosity of history that has not yet happened.’
Enclosing part of a tree trunk in epoxy resin and pigment, the stool reveals a frozen moment of rupture due to the resin’s solidification process. The resulting work represents a quiet, explosive force embalmed in purple and yellow pigment colouration.
