Presenze Relief as an evidence of past lives.
Presenze Relief as ethereal, floating like ghosts.
Presenze Relief as absence and immaterial substance.
Presenze Relief is a testimony of past lives, the evolution of obsolete objects.
With Presenze Relief , Nucleo has created decorative etherneal objects floating through space.
A game of presence and absence, of lightness and weight, challenging the laws of gravity.
The balance is made even more precarious by the milkiness of the resin, permeable to light.
It’s a fascination for the transition, from liquid to solid, from past to present.
And the lack of assemblage is one of the strong characteristics of Presenze Relief.
Each cube, a fragment, gives a sense to the deconstruction.
The objects from other eras are in this sense apparitions, ready to dissolve and split,
in the struggle between material and spirit.
The cubes are cast in epoxy resin and together create the objects.
They are assembled by hand, giving balance between body and space, where individual fragments develop its own intensity –
capable of capturing light and gaze – which goes beyond their function in the context of composition.
