No need to readjust your glasses, because what you’re seeing is not a blurry mirage. It is the unique art of Italian sculptor Edoardo Tresoldi, who uses architecture as an expressive tool to manipulate space and explore the relationship between art and this world. Having experience in the fields of sculpture, stage design, and cinema, he knows just what angles to use to toy with one’s imagination with his works. Since 2013, he has produced semi-transparent installations in public spaces, archaeological sites, festivals, and exhibitions around the world. Of course, his work has been well-received and given the recognition that it deserves in the form of numerous awards.
Looking at this other-worldly project, you can tell why it is named Etherea. When the wire mesh lights up from the artificial lighting, you almost feel wistful that it’s not a real building you can enter.
You can try convincing me that this is not fit to be a garden for Greek gods, but I won’t listen. Upon Wings integrates large-scale architectural beauty into the comfort of a garden setting, and the project becomes a jaw-dropping performance with the dance and light-show.
In one of his most celebrated works yet, Le Basiliche, Tresoldi created a mesh installation with special archeological relevance, emulating the idea of the ancient Christian Church in contemporary space. The illusionary, hologram-like effect of his piece is emphasized by the presence of a real building adjacent to it.
