Anomalous objects that question space and the contingent. Volumes that are always configured as elements that interact with and contradict the space in which they are found. More than presences, they are casts, reliefs, definitions of an absence. Totally devoid of referents in reality, they protrude into space through successions of sinuous isometric curves that create inlets, openings, fjords, bays. They are visible declinations of the status of the work of art in reality.
Danilo Fiorucci (1961) was born in Perugia, where he lives and works. He graduated from the Pietro Vannucci Academy of fine arts in Perugia in 1989. In the same year he founded the Trebisonda visual arts association together with Moreno Barboni, Lucilla Ragni and Robert Lang, acting in art as an artist and as a proponent of educational, exhibition and workshop initiatives. His many experiences include participation in the Biennale of Young Mediterranean Artists in Sarajevo (2001) and the 15. Quadriennale in Rome (2008). He has exhibited in Germany, United States, and Israel. The work Marbor presented for Map3 is part of the series Lo spazio assente (The absent space): the volumes of these sculptures are always configured as elements that interact and challenge the space in which they are located, configuring themselves more as casts, reliefs, definitions of an absence than as presences. The volume, as in a low-definition digital object or an architectural model, totally devoid of referents in the reality, protrudes into space through successions of sinuous isometric curves that create inlets, passages, fjords, bays.
