The one and the other – 2000, bronze
Alessandro Cardinale, Academy of Fine Arts of Venice
3° ed. “the water”
Location: Cuneo, C.so Dante 42
A fountain basin filled with water with at the centre a bronze volume characterized by dark colors, a smooth surface and an irregular shape that reveals itself in the sun’s glare. It represents a face in profile that can be clearly seen on the water when the light hits the sculpture from the back. The theme of the contest is interpreted through the interaction among the different elements: the water, the bronze and the light. The result is a reflexed image that appears and disappears on the surface of the water depending on the movement of the liquid and the presence of the light.
