A Otaniemi l’installazione site-specific di Erika De Martino | Otaniemi, fino al 27.10

Erika De Martino, architetto e fotografa italiana residente a Helsinki, ha inaugurato il suo ultimo lavoro al beta SPACE di Otaniemi. L'installazione fotografica site-specific Beyond Water torna sui temi cari all'artista: la natura che gioca con le superfici e le trasparenze dei supporti, l'attenzione al dialogo con lo spazio espositivo.

Un estratto del comunicato stampa:

"Conceptually, this installation embraces one intrinsic value of Alvar Aalto's architecture: the bond with nature. Water is not visible from the windows, but the shoreline of Laajalahti is very close by. Reconnecting the site to water acts as a reminder of this essential and precious resource, such a strong element in Finnish landscape identity. Identity and resource even more important at present, within the frame of the recent threatening privatization laws.

Architecturally, the lightness of the installation counterbalances the solid presence of the marble, complying with the alternating existing opposites massive/airy, shadow/light of Aalto's space. It is a ”slow” connecting space: the openings towards the inner green courtyard determine a slower rhythm of the walking pace, inviting to stop and look outside. Natural light can filter through the transparent prints detached from both vertical and horizontal surfaces. Hence, new visual planes are created in the architecture's parti, allowing dynamic ovelapped visions within the existing rhythm."

Fino al 27 ottobre.
